## Abstract

A high-frequency time domain finite element scattering code using a combination of edge and piecewise constant elements on unstructured tetrahedral meshes is described. A comparison of computation with theory is given for scattering from a sphere. A parallel implementation making use of the bulk synchronous parallel (BSP) programming model is described in detail; a BSP performance model of the parallelized field calculation is derived and compared to timing measurements on up to 128 processors on a Cray T3D.
