A middleware named EnGrid for distributed computing has been developed. The EnGrid employs the notion of pure peer-to-peer (P2P) for ease of use, not for sharing computer resources across the world as in conventional P2P. We have also developed three PSE systems on EnGrid for civil engineering applications: parameter sweep system for finite element method (FEM), parameter optimization system for FEM, and the visualization system for geological sections of 3 dimensional models. We show that the calculation time of these systems can be shortened by distributed computing on EnGrid. Due to its general nature, EnGrid will be useful not only for civil engineering but also in other fields as well.
