Water Management Simulations, Computing and Virtual Reality of Research Results
Hydraulic simulation models are usually computationally intensive. The security of its own processing power
sufficient for simulation in real time in the event of a threat to the population is uneconomic because of those performances
are in time without compromising the unused. It is therefore a more appropriate solution is to use cluster, grid or cloud-based
computing, which is the modern trend of high-performance computing. Cloud computing is unlimited computational feats
rented from a cloud service provider and paid according to actual utilization. In our institute we are interesting in high
performance computing and before cloud, grid and cluster computing . For execution in water management in Slovakia
we are using system Epanet. In our environment all execution process and simulations process together with the Epanet
system are ported to the Grid or Cloud environment. After computing, execute research results are waiting on the storage
element for a next process – Virtual reality and 3D visualization of research results. For the purposes of the 3D display of
the results of scientific simulation in water management was designed a 3D digital model. Calculations and simulations of
different scenes were counted in the environment of Epanet. Then the process is a 3D display of the results of these
calculations. To the visualization we have developed 3D Visualization Tool (VT) for displaying and working an
environment of the Arc Scene - system ARCGIS. This paper describe the developing and using the 3D visualization tool for
water management in Bratislava and surrounding.
