Osteoporosis is a disease that affects a growing number of people by increasing the fragility of their bones. To improve the understanding of the bone, large scaled computer simulations are applied. A fast, scalable and memory efficient solver for such problems is ParOSol. It uses the preconditioned conjugate gradient algorithm with a multigrid preconditioner. A modification of ParOSol is presented that profits from the exorbitant compute capabilities of recent GPGPUs. Different data-structures on the GPGPU are presented and compared. The fastest achieves a speedup of more than 5 while the code is scalable for huge numbers of GPGPUs.
