The WEC-Sim code currently being developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratory, utilizes a modular structure that allows different physics (e.g. hydrodynamics) and device components to be simulated in separate modules. This code structure enables individual code modules to be developed independently, provided the interface requirements for the modules are well defined. Modules will be developed by the WEC-Sim team and through the use of code competitions that leverage the coding expertise of the worldwide development community. In addition, existing open-source and commercial simulation capabilities will be leveraged where possible to quickly produce a WEC simulation capability. Learn more about the project here.
The goal of this challenge is to create a web based application for our users, the application should allow the user of the OpenWARP/Nemoh BEM code to mesh, run, and post process simulations all from within the same GUI.
- We'd like to have a clean and simple design. See this board for some ideas to get you started on thinking about creating a clean, modern, dark UI: http://www.pinterest.com/bwalles/dark-ui-examples/
- Open to Designers
- Desktop: 1024px and height as required.
- EERE Logos (eere_identifiers.zip)
- Mesh Generator Settings (MeshGeneratorSpecifications.pdf.zip).
- Visualizations examples (visualization.doc.zip)
- Nemoh User Input Settings (NemohUserInputSpecifications.pdf.zip)
1) Landing Page
- What quick information can be displayed on homepage to explain the application?
- We are looking for 3 tabs solution, how can we display them?
2) Meshing/preprocessing Tab
- Users should be able to upload the CAD/STL geometry files.
- Users should be able to specify mesh settings (MeshGeneratorSpecifications.pdf.zip):
- Users should be able to launch paraview to view the mesh geometry, so we need a “Run” or “Execute” button.
3) Simulation Tab
- Users should be able to specify Nemoh settings (NemohUserInputSpecifications.pdf.zip):
Those group of settings are called a Body:
-- Name of mesh file
-- Number of points and number of panels
-- Number of degrees of freedom
-- Roll about a point
-- Pitch about a point
-- Yaw about a point
-- Number of resulting generalised forces
-- Force in x direction
-- Force in y direction
-- Force in z direction
-- Moment force in x direction about a point
-- Moment force in y direction about a point
-- Moment force in z direction about a point
-- Number of lines of additional information
- Design it to allow these parameters to be input for up to 10 bodies
- User should be able to execute Nemoh, so we need a “Run” or “Execute” button.
4) Postprocessing Tab
- Users should be able to convert the Nemoh output to a format that can be read by paraview.
- Users should be able to launch paraview to view and process the results, so we need a “Run” or “Execute” button.
5) Visualized Model
- When the user clicks launches the paraview he will be able to see the visualized model in this page.
- Please use (visualization.doc.zip) for visualizations examples.
- Users of the OpenWARP Application.
- How well you plan the user experience and capture your ideas visually
- Cleanliness of your graphics and design.
- User Experience.
Submission & Source Files:
Create your preview image as one (1) 1024x1024 JPG or PNG file in RGB color mode at 72dpi and place a screenshot of your submission within it.
Please upload PNG images in a zip file with all requested contest requirements stated above. Number your files (01, 02, 03, etc) this will help review them in order.
All original source files of the submitted design. Files should be created in Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator and saved as layered PSD/AI files.
As part of the final fixes phase you may be asked to modify your graphics.
