Title Uintah: a massively parallel problem solving environment
Date 2000
Description This paper describes Uintah, a component-based visual problem solving environment (PSE) that is designed to specifically address the unique problems of massively parallel computation on terascale computing platforms. Uintah supports the entire life cycle of scientific applications by allowing scientific programmers to quickly and easily develop new techniques, debug new implementations, and apply known algorithms to solve novel problems. Uintah is built on three principles: 1) As much as possible, the complexities of parallel execution should be handled for the scientist, 2) software should be reusable at the component level, and 3) scientists should be able to dynamically steer and visualize their simulation results as the simulation executes. To provide this functionality, Uintah builds upon the best features of the SCIRun PSE and the DOE Common Component Architecture (CCA).
