CONVECTOR is a research testing project, which use volunteer computing. Now we calculate optimum of discrete optimization problem, of the 52 bar truss. Description is here (http://convector.fsv.cvut.cz/52_bar_truss.pdf) .

I will be doing some testing on this project in January. I encourage others to do the same and to report their findings with this project. It seems to have plenty of work available according to the server status page. It has been around for a couple years now.

I have created challenges for the sake of stress testing the projects ability to handle load. I encourage everyone to join in as we are seeing if they are worth adding to the DC-Vault.

So far the work units seem to run stable. There hasn't been many reports of any negatives other than their ability to keep a steady flow of work. We ran them dry rather quickly at the beginning of the challenge I issued.

Since the challenge, this project has pretty much died and not came back. No further consideration needed until it returns and is stable.
