Visdom is a software framework combining aspects of simulation and visualization. We have started the visdom initiative to contribute to the understanding of computational fluid dynamics. We are designing novel interfaces to control and interact with a simulation while using visualization in all aspects of the problem solving process.
Our goal is to create a user friendly system which supports design, simulation and analysis of flow simulations in one integrated framework. We share the vision that, ultimately, the tools developed in this project will assist in managing time-critical situations.
Even non-experts should be able to steer and learn from simulations. We consider disaster management, industrial design, rapid prototyping and education as important application areas.
