Integrated simulation and design system for civil and structural engineering


The objective of the project is develop a high-performance analysis and design tool for the civil and structural engineering industry based on recent advances in quality-assured finite-element solutions and parallel computing.

These will be integrated into a domain-specific computer-aided design system which will meet the rapidly growing demands of the civil and structural-engineering sectors. Amongst these demands are: innovative construction; improved design through better modelling; iterative just-in time design; and levels of safety and economy not achievable with oversimplified models. These demands will be addressed by the speed-up of analysis and modelling through the use of HPCN. An improved quality of analysis which will be achieved by coupling HPCN with advanced finite-element techniques. The prototype system to be developed will be based on existing software, will incorporate the latest research results and will be tested on real-life problems from civil and structural engineering. The project will stimulate the use of HPCN for simulation and design in a sector in which it has previously made little impact.
