Adaptive Mesh Refinement
VACET is a leader in production quality, parallel adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) visualization and analysis software infrastructure. We have recently deployed this infrastructure to our scientific stakeholders: the SciDAC Applied Partial Differential Equations Center (APDEC) and the SciDAC Community Astrophysics Consortium. This result has numerous direct benefits to those researchers. First, it allows them to “buy rather than build”, thereby resulting in a direct cost savings of scientific staff: they no longer need to develop and maintain AMR visualization software. Second, the VACET technology allows them to effectively use parallel computing infrastructure to perform interactive visual data analysis to help answer scientific questions in domains like combustion and astrophysics. Third, since the VACET technologies are deployed at DOE’s open computing facilities as well as on the scientists’ desktop, this result is an example of successfully bridging the gap across research, development and production deployment activities within DOE’s science programs.
