Scientific Visualization at Mines

Software access guides for our HPC Platforms

Connect to a running Ansys Fluent solver using Ansys Fluent Remote Visualization Client

Use parallel computing to visualize your data by connecting ParaView 

Create a workflow in Python in a Jupyter Notebook

Road Map

  1. Develop software packages on HPC platforms for visualization: Test and create tutorials for user access
    1. Blender HPC rendering (In Progress)
    2. Jupyter notebook workflow with Paraview
    3. Simply access and job submission through using 
  2. Apply for cyberinfrastructure grant for new equipment for campus support of visualization needs:
    Seeking assistants with NSF CC* grant Science Drivers from current and potential campus users
  3. Build user community and knowledge base at Mines: Connect researchers to talent and equipment across Mines campus


  • Work flow management: Simulation to Visualization. The pathway to drawing insight from your data
  • Rendering: Video, GIF, and images: Paraview to Blender scene creation with lighting and camera animation
  • Colormaps: How to select the focus of your data? and Black and White publishing challenges
