Web-based simulation: revolution or evolution?
Ernest H. Page, Arnold Buss, Paul A. Fishwick, Kevin J. Healy, Richard E. Nance, Ray J. Paul
Pages: 3-17
DOI: 10.1145/353735.353736
The nature of the emerging field of web-based simulation is examined in terms of its relationship to the fundamental aspects of simulation research and practice. The presentation, assuming a form of debate, is based on a panel session held at...

Web-based network analysis and design
Dhananjai Madhava Rao, Radharamanan Radhakrishnan, Philip A. Wilsey
Pages: 18-38
DOI: 10.1145/353735.353737
The gradual acceptance of high-performance networks as a fundamental component of today's computing environment has allowed applications to evolve from static entities located on specific hosts to dynamic, distributed entities that are resident...

The Purdue University network-computing hubs: running unmodified simulation tools via the WWW
Nirav H. Kapadia, José A. B. Fortes, Mark S. Lundstrom
Pages: 39-57
DOI: 10.1145/353735.353738
This paper describes the Web interface management infrastructure of a functioning network-computing system (PUNCH) that allows users to run unmodified simulation packages at geographically dispersed sites. The system currently contains more than...

Improving the aircraft design process using Web-based modeling and simulation
John A. Reed, Gregory J. Follen, Abdollah A. Afjeh
Pages: 58-83
DOI: 10.1145/353735.353739
Designing and developing new aircraft systems is time-consuming and expensive. Computational simulation is a promising means for reducing design cycle times, but requires a flexible software environment capable of integrating advanced...
