The paper analyzes the performance of parallel global optimization algorithm, which is used to optimize grillage-type foundations. The parallel algorithm is obtained by using the automatic parallelization tool. We describe briefly the layer structure of the Master–Slave Template library and present a detailed mathematical formulation of the application problem. Experiments are done on the homogeneous computer cluster of 7 IBM machines RS6000. The results of experiments are presented.
