GEODISE computer-aided design. Researchers using GEODISE utilities during a video conference on engineering. Graphics and data relating to aerodynamics are projected onto a wall for analysis. GEODISE (Grid Enabled Optimisation and Design Search for Engineering) is a project that allows the computing power of a network of supercomputers to be accessed through a portal on a standard desktop computer. Engineering problems can be fed to the supercomputers, which then work out aerodynamics and can modify designs to improve them. GEODISE is a collaboration between the Universities of Manchester, Southampton and Oxford. Photographed in 2003.
