Optimization using Nimrod/O and its Application to Robust Mechanical Design
MetadataShow full item record
We describe the Nimrod/O distributed optimization tool and its application to a problem in mechanical design. The problem is to determine the shape for a hole in a thin plate under load that gives optimal life in the presence of flaws. The experiment reveals two distinct design strategies for optimizing this life. Nimrod/O is able to find both of these rapidly due to its inherent parallelism.
