Abstract

top
In this paper we test the feasibility of coupling two heterogeneous mathematical modeling integrated within two different codes residing on distant sites. A prototype is developed using Schwarz type domain decomposition as the mathematical tool for coupling. The computing technology for coupling uses a CORBA environment to implement a distributed client-server programming model. Domain decomposition methods are well suited to reducing complex physical phenomena into a sequence of parallel subproblems in time and space. The whole process is easily tuned to underlying hardware requirements.
