SDII is pursuing advanced models of steel and steel-concrete systems. For many of these models the computational time is extreme, and that is where the assistance of the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) comes in. XSEDE supports high performance computing through a grant from the National Science Foundation (grant number ACI-1548562). Through SDII’s NSF grants we are able to request and receive compute time and support for our work. XSEDE provides high throughput computing platforms and licenses to costly technical software such as ABAQUS that makes our work possible. In particular, We thank D. J. Choi for his assistance with optimizing the simulation software used in this research, which was made possible through the XSEDE Extended Collaborative Support Service (ECSS) program.
