A typical target for the project would be a cluster of large PCs or UNIX workstations, including symmetric multiprocessing systems, or even a heterogeneous mixture of both.
PARADISE will deliver the following software components:
network infrastructure layer
resource management layer
parallel programming environments
Each component will have a specification, an implementation, a test harness, and user documentation. Initial prototype versions will precede the final, definitive version.
Two real applications will be ported to demonstrate the effectiveness of the tools developed:
INDIA is a fluid-structure finite element code developed by CISE and used by ENEL, the Italian Electricity company, for seismic analysis of dams.
The second application is a system to analyse two-phase flow combustion problems, developed by CERFACS in France.
