From its early days and focus upon the finite element method development (e.g. Zienkiewicz [1971], Bittnar [1998]), the computational mechanics has developed into a very broad area, much driven by various industrial applications (e.g. Oden et al. [2003]). Very diverse problems are presently of interest for research and expertise of computational mechanics(More)
PLATON is a Problem Solving Environment (PSE) for distributed numerical optimisation that allows the construction and steering of large-scale optimisation processes on a computational Grid. It is also an environment for coupling optimisation and simulation software. Evolutionary Optimisation is a good example of a problem which can efficiently designed to(More)
Overview The Dagstuhl seminar was attended by 33 participants from four countries. The intention was to bring together scientists from the elds of Numerical Analysis, Computer Science, Engineering and Natural Sciences, respectively, in order to discuss the state of the art and future developments of parallel processing in the applied sciences. The meeting(More)
