S.G. Parker, D.M. Weinstein, C.R. Johnson. The SCIRun Computational Steering Software System, In Modern Software Tools in Scientific Computing, Edited by E. Arge and A.M. Bruaset and H.P. Langtangen, Birkhauser Press, Boston pp. 1--40. 1997.
We present the design, implementation and application of SCIRun, a scientific programming environment that allows the interactive construction, debugging, and steering of large-scale scientific computations. Using this "computational workbench," a scientist can design and modify simulations interactively via a dataflow programming model. SCIRun enables scientists to design and modify model geometry, interactively change simulation parameters and boundary conditions, and interactively visualize geometric models and simulation results. We discuss the ubiquitous roles SCIRun plays as a computational tool (e.g. resource manager, thread scheduler, development environment), and how we have applied an object oriented design (implemented in C++) to the scientific computing process. Finally, we demonstrate the application of SCIRun to large scale problems in computational medicine. 1.1 Introduction 1.1.1 Visual Computing and Interactive Steering In recent years, the scientific computing commu...
