Summary
FLOWGRID is an example of a GRID computing environment, with the vision to enable CFD simulations to be set-up, executed and monitored on geographically and organisationally dispersed computing resources. It consists of several modules, which together form an environment in which the user can:
  • Register to the service via the FlowGrid Portal;
  • Interactively create or modify CFD cases;
  • Examine available resources and choose where to run his/her problem;
  • Submit a case to run on a chosen system;
  • Monitor and influence the solution process;
  • View the results in real time as the solution progresses;
  • Interactively view the results at the end of a computation.
