MIRAGE large very high definition display
Numerical simulation depends on computer programs, which are being run on increasingly powerful computers. Hence, these programs are simulating physical phenomena in ever increasing detail, with discretised data and results. The numerical simulation manifests itself through visualization of the physical phenomena on a screen.
The CEA/DAM decided to equip a visualization facility with the high-performance MIRAGE (Mur d’image à résolution augmentée et grande échelle - a higher resolution large-scale video wall), suitable for the extreme size of the finite physical phenomena being investigated. Installed as close as possible to the engineers, it is connected to the computing centre’s high-speed network.
