This paper investigates the scalability of a parallel fast multipole accelerated boundary integral equation method in electrostatic field analyses. A load balancing technique suitable for highly parallel computation with 100 or more processes, which is a domain decomposition method based on octree structure in the FMM, is also proposed. Numerical results clarify the effectiveness of the developed method in practical models with complicated geometry.
