EGI Virtual teams: Main Active Projects Closed Projects Guidelines

Key applications and software tools in the fire and smoke simulation area:

  • Firestation
  • pFirestation
  • gFirestation
  • Wind simulation
  • FARSITE
  • Firestation
  • Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS)


Which of the applications would benefit from integration with EGI/NGI services:

  • Firestation
    • compute intensive (to run on a single machine)
    • requires user friendly web interfaces (portal interfaces)
  • Two-stage fire prediction scheme
    • needs to connect to databases or other resources at multiple sites
    • requires hosting on remote resources (to provide a service for a large community)
    • requires user friendly web interfaces (portal interfaces)
  • FDS
    • compute intensive (to run on a single machine)


Computing systems used for running the applications:

  • desktop computer
  • compute cluster
  • Grid infrastructure


Types of applications:

  • Pure batch mode
  • Parallel applications with lots of communication
  • Only transfer of input/output data to computer
  • Frequent but small communication between computers
  • Coupled applications (applications such as independent fluid structure)
  • Parallel applications with low communication


Compilers needed to build the applications:

  • gcc
  • gfortran
  • f90/95
