Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this study, an interactive scientific visualization environment was constructed by directly connecting the five-screen immersive projection display CABIN with an IBM SP2 parallel supercomputer through the FDDI network. In this environment, numerical simulation can be executed interactively according to the user’s motion and the result of the calculation can be visualized in real -time. In particular, a parallel redundand prediction method using the parallel computer was developed to realize a real-time numerical simulation. This method was applied to the deformation analysis of the rubber using the non-linear finite element method, and the interactive visualization according to the user’s “push” action was performed. By using this visualization, the performances of accuracy and calculation time were experimentally evaluated.
