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.
Structural Logic Design
Soobum Lee, Department of Mechanical Engineering

The PI (Soobum Lee) developed a Matlab-Simulink based tool for a structural logic assembly which aims at structural system analysis/design for modern military platforms and buildings to adapt to varying loads and simultaneously exhibit both high stiffness and high damping. This tool finds the optimal solution using genetic algorithm which requires plenty of function analysis, and HPC facility will help speeding up this design task. Usage Level: About a week run by parallel computing w/ 5 cores will find an optimum solution. May require multiple runs.
