In this paper efficient methods are presented for optimal analysis of skeletal structures and finite element models. These methods are based on concepts from algebraic graph theory and comprises of efficient algorithms to calculate the Fiedler vector of the Laplacian matrix of a graph. This vector is used for nodal ordering to obtain wellstructured stiffness matrices with low profiles. The application is made for graph partitioning and correspondingly domain decomposition of finite element meshes for parallel computing. Methods are presented for calculating the Fiedler vector of symmetric structures.
