Abstract: This paper presents a case study about how one user developed and ran codes on a grid, in this case in the form of the National Grid Service (NGS). The user had access to the core components of the NGS which consisted of four clusters which are configured, unlike most other U.K. academic hpc services, to be used primarily through grid technologies, in this case globus. This account includes how this code was parallelised, its performance and the issues involved in selecting and using the NGS for the development and running of these codes. A general understanding of the application area, computational geotechnical engineering, and the performance issues of these codes are required to make this clear.
