Stress singularity is usually observed in practical stress analysis, and it may lead to the deterioration of the convergence rate of the preconditioned conjugate gradient method (PCG). Until now, parallel PCG has been used without considering the practical issues; therefore, the deterioration was induced in the problem in which stress singularity was observed. The convergence acceleration method was developed in parallel PCG based on controlled domain decomposition. The acceleration method can
