Abstract

Invited Paper An advanced environment for scientific visualization using cooperative processing for animation M. Bernaschi, M. Briscolini, P. Santangelo, F. Valentin! IBM ECSEC, European Center for Scientific and Engineering Computing, Rome, Italy ABSTRACT This paper describes the IBM AIX 4-D Scientific Data Visualizer/6000, an advanced tool for the visualization of three-dimensional numerical simu- lations, where a distributed environment has been used to separate concep- tually the numerical simulation from the visualization process. An efficient communication interface let the two processes communicate and exchange data and allows each process to be run on the proper machine. High per- formance computing devices are used for the numerical simulations and advanced visualizing workstations display the results as they flow through the network. The visualization environment includes i) an interactive tool for the visualization of three-dimensional data, ii) a genera
