    Abstract

    The paper examines software design aspects of implementing parallel and distributed computing for transient structural problems. Overall design is achieved using object and component oriented methods. The ideas are implemented using .NET and the Task Parallel Library (TPL). Parallelisation and distribution is applied both to single problems, and to solving multiple problems. The use of object-oriented design means that the solvers and data are packaged together, and this helps facilitate distributed and parallel solution. Factory objects are used to provide the solvers, and interfaces are used to represent both the factory objects and solvers.
