Please note that this page is under construction. We are documenting the 240-node cluster maya that will be available after Summer 2014. Currently, the 84-node cluster tara still operates independently, until it becomes part of maya at the end of Summer 2014. Please see the 2013 Resources Pages under the Resources tab for tara information.
Compliant Mechanisms Design
Haijun Su and Hafez Tari, Department of Mechanical Engineering

Compliant Mechanisms synthesis will result in unwieldy systems of polynomial equations which should be solved using numerical continuation methods e.g. Homotopy Methods. It is reasonable to use parallel versions of these software along with HPC to speed up the calculation.
