  • Abstract: VELaSSCo aims at developing a new concept of integrated end-user visual analysis methods with advanced management and post-processing algorithms for engineering modelling applications, scalable for real-time petabyte level simulations [59]. The interface will enable real- time interrogation of simulation data, generating key information for analysis. Main concerns have to do with handling of large amounts of data of a very specific kind intrinsically linked to geometrical properties; how to store, access, simplify and manipulate billion of records to extract the relevant information; how to represent information in a feasible and flexible way; and how to visualise and interactively inspect the huge quantity of information they produce taking into account end- user’s needs. VELaSSCo achieves this by putting together experts with relevant background in Big Data handling, advanced visualisation, engineering simulations, and a User Panel including research centres, SMEs and companies form key European industrial sectors such as aerospace, household products, chemical, pharmaceutical and civil engineering.
