USE BOINC FOR VOLUNTEER COMPUTING EXTENDED ABSTRACT
Nosek J.
pages 412 - 418, full text

GRID is a utilization of heterogeneous computing facilities interconnected with the fast Ethernet. The main advantage is GRID availability, since all offices are nowadays equipped with powerful PCs. There is no need for so-called volunteer computing like the famous SETI@home project which uses a computing power offered by anonymous users on internet. Any project can be implemented in a framework of a scientific group through the BOINC middleware which was developed during the SETI@home project. Our contribution shows the possibilities of such computing environment on an example of structural sizing optimization that needs an enormous computational power.
