A Multi-cluster Grid Enabled Evolution Framework for Aerodynamic Airfoil Design Optimization
Advances in grid computing have recently sparkled the research and development of Grid problem solving environments for complex design. Parallelism 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. In this paper, we present a powerful and inexpensive grid enabled evolution framework based on Globus and NetSolve toolkits for facilitating embarrassingly parallelism in hierarchical parallel evolutionary algorithms. By exploiting the grid evolution framework and a multi-level parallelization strategy of hierarchical parallel GAs, we present the evolutionary optimization of a realistic 2D aerodynamic airfoil structure. Further, we study the utility of hierarchical parallel GAs on two potential grid enabled evolution framework and analysis how it fares on a grid environment with multiple heterogeneous clusters, i.e., clusters with differing...
