Résumé : The preconditioned conjugate gradient algorithm is a well-known and powerful method used to solve large sparse symmetric positive definite linear systems Such system are generated by the finite element discretisation in structural analysis but users of finite elements in this contest generally still rely on direct methods It is our purpose in the present work to highlight the improvement brought forward by some new preconditioning techniques and show that the preconditioned conjugate gradient method performs better than efficient direct methods.
