Advances in grid computing have recently sparkled the research and development of Grid problem solving environments for complex design. Paral-lelism in the form of distributed computing is a growing trend, particularly so in the analysis and optimization of high-fidelity computationally expensive real world design problems in science and engineering.

This paper presents the experiences gained from ongoing research collaboration between the School of Computer Engineering at Nanyang Technological University and the Southampton e-Science centre at the University of Southampton using a service-oriented approach for complex engineering design optimization. The service-oriented approach enables programmatic… (More)
In this paper, we present a scalable parallel framework, which employs grid computing technologies, for solving computationally expensive and intractable design problems. Using an aerodynamic airfoil design optimization problem as an example the application of the grid computing strategies is discussed .
