COMPONENT APPROACH TO DISTRIBUTED MULTISCALE SIMULATIONS

Katarzyna Rycerz, Marian Bubak

Abstract

This paper presents a component approach suitable for distributed multiscale simulations. We describe the integration of the High Level Architecture (HLA) distributed simulation standard with modern computing frameworks: component technologies and Grid infrastructures, which enable users working on distributed simulations to easily exchange, the simulation models available to them. We discuss the design challenges involved in developing an HLA component which can be steered by a user during simulation runtime. More specifically, we present a solution which supports concurrent control of two different layers: the Grid (exploited by the user to steer the component). and the HLA. This functionality is presented on a sample multi-scale stellar system simulation.
