This document contains the descriptions, algorithms,
user information and listings of the parallel
Fortran90/MPI versions of the suite of programs found in
NIST-IR 6269, Finite Element and Finite Difference
Programs for Computing the Linear Electric and Elastic
Properties of Digital Images fo Random Materials. These
programs use 3-D digital image data on random materials
as input and then calculate the effective properties of
the random material when subjected to applied fields
(for example, mechanical/thermal stresses and AC/DC
electric fields). The purpose behind this undertaking is
to execute these programs in a parallel computing
environment (for example, Linux clusters), so as to
decrease real-time execution, increase the potential
problem size, and ncrease digital resolution/problem
