Porting Legacy Engineering Applications onto Distributed NT Systems

Porting Legacy Engineering Applications onto Distributed NT Systems
In this paper we present our experiences developing two distributed computing applications on NT. In both examples a legacy application is ported from Unix to NT and is then further developed to be a distributed application within the NT environment. We shall present two different approaches to managing the remote execution of tasks. One is a port of a serial vibroacoustic analysis code called PAFEC VibroAcoustic and the other is the parallelisation of the non-linear analysis modules of the LUSAS FE analysis package. We shall show in these two projects that it is technically possible to carry out scientific computing on a distributed NT resource.

Abstract

In this paper we present our experiences developing two distributed computing applications on NT. In both examples a legacy application is ported from Unix to NT and is then further developed to be a distributed application within the NT environment. We shall present two different approaches to managing the remote execution of tasks. One is a port of a serial vibroacoustic analysis code called PAFEC VibroAcoustic and the other is the parallelisation of the non-linear analysis modules of the LUSAS FE analysis package. We shall show in these two projects that it is technically possible to carry out scientific computing on a distributed NT resource.
