AbstractIntroduction to CIFE's high performance computing (HPC) environment for MDO research - a 17 node compute cluster purchased in April, 2009. A test case application of the HPC environment to the structural design of a stadium roof structure is described. The results of the study demonstrate that the HPC environment enables orders of magnitude reduction in design cycle time and computational time required compared to conventional practice and serial execution of the optimization method using a single server, respectively.
