The most common form of structural engineering is the design of buildings and civil structures. Structural engineering is also expanding into the design of machinery, medical equipment, vehicles or any item where structural integrity affects function or safety. Because of this many products have requirements for code certifications that must be met to ensure safety and lower the liability risk in case of product failure. Structural engineers must ensure their designs satisfy given criteria, predicated on serviceability and performance.
Biotech and medical research are now finding the use of structural engineering is helping to understand cell structure and effects of chemical compounds. The mapping proteins moving across/through cellular walls is a prime example.
Small and medium businesses (SMB) have found that they are at a distinct competitive disadvantage in trying to design and test those designs without the proper tools and systems. In the past, high performance clusters were out of the reach of most of these companies. With advances in technology and scalability, SMB companies can invest in a modestly priced system that is scaled to their level and requirements.
NSG specializes in providing 2 – 64 node clusters for the SMB market and can design a system that offers you the best value for your budget. NSG solutions are based on tier one manufacturers like Hewlett Packard and Hitachi.
