RML has 15 quad-core workstations for general modeling, simulations, and day-to-day use. For more complicated simulations and analyses, the lab has a multi-purpose multi-core 64-bit computer station. The computers operate Linux and Windows platforms and are loaded with licensed software necessary for our research needs, including Matlab, Mathematica, C++ and C development environments, MathCAD, Maple, MSC ADAMS and related Toolkits, Abaqus, SolidWorks, ProEngineer, COMSOL, ANSYS, and LabView. Additional software is also available when needed from VT’s College of Engineering license server. Furthermore, the lab is located on the same with the machine shop. In addition to the Design, Instructional and computer Labs, computational clusters for even more advanced simulations are available.
