INTEGRATING VR IN AN ENGINEERING COLLABORATIVE PROBLEM SOLVING ENVIRONMENT

Ismael H. F. dos Santos, Alberto Raposo, Marcelo Gattass

Abstract

We present an environment for executing engineering simulations and visualizing results in a Virtual Environment. The work is motivated by the necessity of finding effective solutions for collaboration of team workers during the execution of complex Petroleum Engineering projects. By means of a Scientific Workflow Management System users are able to orchestrate the execution of different simulations as workflow tasks that can be arranged in many ways according to project requirements. Within a workflow, as its last step, the most interesting cases can be selected for visualization in a distributed collaborative session.
