A Framework for Interactive Physical Simulations on Remote HPC Clusters

Please always quote using this URN: urn:nbn:de:bvb:29-opus4-50246
  • In this work, we introduce the framework for visualization and interactivity for physics engines in real-time, for short VIPER. It is able to execute various physical simulations, visualize the simulation results in real-time and offer computational steering. Especially interesting in this context are simulations running on remotely accessible HPC clusters. As an example, we present a particulate flow simulation consisting of a coupled rigid body and CFD simulation, the chosen visualization strategy and steering possibilities. Additionally, performance evaluations and a performance prediction model concerning the update rate for remote simulations in the context of the VIPER framework areIn this work, we introduce the framework for visualization and interactivity for physics engines in real-time, for short VIPER.
