SCIRun 5 Folks,

    I am a computer science graduate student at USU, enrolled this semester in a Scientific Visualization class.  I am looking for a final project topic that might involve my particular interests in scientific modeling and visualization.  I am not familiar with SCIRun 5, but I see that it is described as an environment for modeling, simulation and visualization of scientific problems, which seems right in line with my interests.  Your websites describe SCIRun 5 applications that are mostly for bio-related purpose, though I presume that does not indicate that the SCIRun 5 application itself is limited to that particular field of study.  I looked at the Platform Notes - Build Requirements web page and believe I could get through an installation on my own.  I see there is a Tutorial, and will have a go at that immediately if a project is a possibility for me  Ideally, I would like to do a term project that does the following:

  • Install SCIRun 5 running on Linux Mint 20 in a Singularity container (I have some experience here and I'm pretty sure I can do this)
  • Use SCIRun 5 to set up a simple electrostatic physics experiment: initial conditions of a cathode plate, anode plate straddling a volume of charged particles
  • Use SCIRun 5 to run a simulation of the experiment
  • Use SCIRun 5 to present a visualization of running the experiment
    Can you tell me if this would be realistic for a 3 or 4 week semester project given that I am starting from scratch with SCIRun 5?  If this is too ambitious, could I scale it back to the first 2 bullets and get that much done in the time I have?  Also, are there other sources of information, or additional tutorials that would help me get a basic understanding of the modeling, simulation and visualization capabilities of SCIRun 5?
