This presentation will describe the use of science gateways to enable Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) on distributed high performance computing resources, providing simplified and expanded access to modeling and simulation software, enabling controlled sharing and replication of models and results between collaborators, and the capturing of metadata needed for replication of results. Science gateways are web and desktop user interfaces securely connected to middleware that brokers connections to distributed advanced computing resources. We discuss further the potential of science gateways to support verification, validation, and uncertainty quantification (VVUQ).
- Understand how science gateways can be used to broaden access to engineering software on high performance computing resources
- Understand how science gateways can be used to create and share replicable modeling and simulation processes and results between team members and across enterprises
- Understand how science gateways can implement the cybersecurity requirements of a wide range of users
Why Is This Important?
Modeling and simulation techniques are increasingly important in engineering and manufacturing, enabling faster and more novel design processes, and streamlining the processes needed to bring designs to production. Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) is also increasingly dependent on high performance computers, cloud computing, and related advanced computing infrastructure. Simplifying and expanding access to engineering software on a distributed collection of high performance computing resources with secure data and metadata management are important to the current and next generation of design and manufacturing.
