– The preliminary design space exploration for large, interdisciplinary engineering problems is often a difficult and time-consuming task. General techniques are needed that efficiently and methodically search the design space. This work focuses on the use of parallel load balancing techniques integrated with a global optimizer to reduce the computational(More)
isualization has let scientists gain an understanding of their data that was not previously possible. However, lack of integration among the various software modules often separates the visual-ization process from the computation that generates the data. VizCraft is a problem-solving environment that aids designers during the configuration design of a(More)
We describe a visualization tool to aid aircraft designers during the conceptual design stage. The conceptual design for an aircraft is defined by a vector of 10-30 parameters. The goal is to find a vector that minimizes an objective function while meeting a series of constraints. VizCraft integrates the simulation code that evaluates the design with(More)
