In this work a computational procedure for two-scale topology optimisation problem using parallel computing techniques is developed. The goal is to obtain the best structure and material simultaneously, considering the minimum compliance criterion. An algorithmic strategy is presented in a suitable way for parallelization. In terms of parallel computing facilities it is used an IBM Cluster 1350 computing system comprising 70 computing nodes each with 2 dual core processors, for a total of 280 cores. Scalability studies are performed with mechanical structures of low/moderate dimensions and finally a very demanding computational problem (ÂboneÂ problem) shows the applicability of the model and methodology presented.
