McCloud - Monte Carlo Cloud Service Framework provides a generic service implementation of Monte Carlo method, based on Microsoft Windows Azure, to solve a wide range of scientific and engineering problems.

The framework was developed in the context of the following master’s thesis:

The original code and documentation of the framework can be downloaded in the Codeplex official repository:

http://mccloud.codeplex.com

This GitHub repository stores the codes and results related to a Monte Carlo simulation in a structural system that was used as a benchmark test for the framework. Details can be seen in the following paper:
