Abstract : This report describes the MicroVAX II based computational equipment funded by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research and installed at Drexel University. This equipment is dedicated exclusively for computational mechanics for composites materials research. Owing to its large computing capacity and availability to perform intensive computational tasks at substantially lower unit cost, this equipment has casted positive impacts on current AFOSR programs and other research work conducted at Drexel University. In short, this computational equipment has already enhanced the quality and the quantity of composite materials research at Drexel University. Keywords: Computational mechanics, Damage simulation, Composite materials.
