Abstract
THIS PROJECT CONCERNS THE DESIGN OF AN INTERACTIVE FLOW SOLVER SOFTWARE TECHNOLOGY. THE NOVEL ASPECTS INCLUDE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NETWORK-COMPATIBLE SOFTWARE ENVIRONMENTFOR COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS (CFD), THE FOCUS ON INTERACTIVITY AND ON REAL-TIME RESPONSE, AND THE DESIGN OF GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACES FOR SCIENTIFIC COMPUTATION. THE PROJECT OBJECTIVE IS TO DEVELOP A CAPABILITY FOR INTERACTING WITH A THREE-DIMENSIONAL EULER SOLVER IN REAL TIME. A SUCCESSFUL EFFORT WILL ESTABLISH THE POSSIBILITY OF BUILDING INTERACTIVE CFD SOFTWARE FOR A CRAY-SGI-ETHERNET-TCP/IP-UNIX-ARC3D COMBINATION.
