G-Ship: Product Description for Ship Motion Analysis using Grid Technologies



The vision for the product is an Internet based portal where designs can be submitted for analysis and followed up with an interactive dialogue between the designer and the various services linked together via the portal. By adopting suitable protocols the facilities offered would be capable of combination with other, related services to provide greater scope to designers working in this general area. Users would access the tools provided without the need for software being shipped in the traditional way via CD-ROM and would be able to license software on a ‘pay per use’ basis. Computations would be initiated by the portal and distributed over available Grid based resources. Users would sign onto the system using Globus certification.
