Fault simulation is a compute-intensive problem. Data parallel simulation on multiple processors is one method to reduce fault simulation time. In this paper, we discuss a novel technique to partition the fault set for data parallel fault simulation. When applied statically, the technique can scale well for up to eight processors. The fault set partitioning technique is simple, can itself be parallelized, and can be implemented with extreme ease. Therefore, the technique can be used on a
