Cloud-based Multi-user Finite Element Pre/Post-processing Framework

Project status: Complete

Thrust area: New Design Paradigms and Processes

Research team: Greg Jensen,

We propose a system framework for multi-user finite element pre/post-processing in a cloud-computing environment where multiple users interact and collaborate on multiple models and analyses with dynamically scalable computing resources. Current prototypes for multi-user engineering software require commands to be executed on every client. With this system each client will no longer need to execute commands individually (less-resource intensive). This will make better use of computing resources by allocating them according to demand.
