This MR presents the implementation of parallel computing with Taylor-Hood elements. Except the basic changes in the numerical and mesh libraries, HydroMechanics process is enabled for parallel computing with tests in this MR.
The parallization of other processes that are use Taylor-Hood element is available in this branch. Those changes will be committed as MR via process wise with corresponding tests.
Feature description was added to the changelog
Tests covering your feature were added? Yes.
Four benchmarks based a 2D problem are included. The 2D problem has rectangle geometry. On the top boundary, the pore pressure is set to zero and a vertical traction boundary condition is applied. The parallel computations with the monolithic coupling scheme, staggered coupling scheme, single mesh, multi-meshes, are tested by the four benchmarks, respectively.
Any new feature or behavior change was documented?
