Parametric Studies for the AEC Domain Using InteliGrid Platform

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 28)


Parametric studies play a vital role in science and engineering in general. They usually consist of a number of repetitive, independent calculations that are therefore easily parallelized. Scientists and engineers involved in this type of work need a computing environment that delivers large amounts of computational power over a long period of time. Such environment is provided by the InteliGrid project testbed. The paper introduces the InteliGrid platform and provides a detailed description of the demonstrated IDA parametric studies and its execution on the InteliGrid testbed as well as benchmark analysis of the benefits provided by the deployed Condor high-throughput computing system.
