The goal of this integration was to add the Grid-functionalities of the Globus Toolkit to the existing TENT solutions for resource selection, application starting and data transfer, and in some cases to replace them entirely. A major advantage of this integration is that it allows TENT to use the security mechanisms in Globus. Globus integration turns TENT into a grid computing environment, i.e. an application that gives users access to the resources of computational grids for their daily work.
Globus Toolkit features were added to TENT in these areas:
The aim of the project SUPEA (was the development of a numerical testbed for simulation of gasturbines. This system integrates different solvers for complex simulations (fluid dynamics and combustion) as well as analysis and visualization tools. The main idea is to give the application engineer the opportunity to do interactive virtual experiments on gasturbines.
