A theoretical and numerical analysis of complicated physical models requires a large computing power. One of the ways to obtain sufficient computational power is to take advantage of the High Performance Computing (HPC) cluster environment. This paper shows the idea of using such an infrastructure in the modelling process of some physical phenomena. Three different issues embracing areas of acoustic field distributions, strip waveguide light propagation and modelling of planar interferometric structures are dealt with. Also the infrastructure of the HPC cluster created in the Department of Optoelectronics of our University is describer.
