A block-structured approach for solving 2-dimensional finite element approximations of the Poisson equation on graphics processing units(GPUs) is developed. Linear triangular elements are used, and a matrix-free version of the conjugate gradient method is utilized for solving test problems with over 30 million elements. A speedup of 24 is achieved on a NVIDIA Tesla C1060 GPU when compared to a serial CPU version of the same solution approach, and a comparison is made with previous GPU implementations of the same problem.
