Parallel Computational Weld Mechanics

Goldak Technologies Inc. (GTI), www.goldaktec.com, is an Ontario SME and worldwide leader in Computational Weld Mechanics (CWM), a critical technology for building nuclear reactors, ships, submarines, and offshore structures.  GTI’s software package VrWeld is arguably worldwide the best software for CWM.  The goal of this project is to build a new version of VrWeld, optimized for parallel processing, with at least 10-fold increase in computing speed.  This will enable novel industrial applications of VrWeld such as real-time control of industrial welding processes and improved design of experiments (DOE) for better accuracy.  The project will help expand GTI’s worldwide leadership position and market share in CWM, and will be of significant benefit to GTI Inc. and Ontario.
