Abstract

The Grid Computing[1] has been paid much attention from researchers as an alternative to parallel computing for its unlimited number of potential resources available and as an easier way to build collaborative environments among multiple disciplines. However, the difficulty in establishing the environments and accessing and utilizing the resources has prevented application scientists from using Grid computing. Thus, the present study focuses on building PSE(Problem Solving Environment) which assists application researchers to easily access and utilize the Grid. The Cactus toolkit, originally developed by astrophysicists, is used as a base frame for Grid PSE. Some modules are newly developed and modified for CFD(Computational Fluid Dynamics) analysis. Simultaneously, a web portal, Grid-One portal, is built for remote monitoring/control and job migration. Cactus frame through the web portal service has been applied to various CFD problems, demonstrating that the developed PSE is valuable for large-scaled applications on the Grid.
