Remote Visualisation

Remote visualisation finally allows computational engineers to make qualified statements about their results. In the age of “big data” the visualisation of computations and simulations can be controlled most effectively through remote visualisation software such as VNC, NoMachine NX or NICE DCV.

One major advantage of remote visualisation is that the vast amounts of data are not stored locally and capacity does not have to be provided for uploads and downloads. Instead access takes place remotely from a local computer to a computer or server at another location. CPU 24/7 can offer you various open source and commercial possibilities for desktop visualisation.

Rigid Body Simulation

The rigid body simulation describes the simulation of movement of virtual modelled spatial objects. These movements can be either translational or rotational.
