We present a software architecture and framework that can be used to facilitate the development of data processing applications for High Energy Physics experiments. The development strategy follows an architecture-centric approach as a way of creating a resilient software framework that can withstand changes in requirements and technology over the long(More)
We present the strategy that has been adopted for the development of the software system for the LHCb experiment. This strategy follows an architecture-centric approach as a way of creating a resilient software framework that can withstand changes in requirements and technology. The software architecture, called GAUDI, covers event data processing(More)
Several numerical approaches have been proposed in the literature to simulate the behavior of modern blast furnaces: finite volume methods, data-mining models, heat and mass balance models, and classical thermodynamic simulations. Despite this, there is actually no efficient method for evaluating quickly optimal operating parameters of a blast furnace as a(More)
A coherent O-O framework has been developed for describing the LHCb experimental apparatus to be used by the simulation, reconstruction and analysis applications. This framework is used for the realization of the detector data service, which is one of the main components of the GAUDI architecture in use in LHCb. Examples of detector description data are:(More)
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) needs to rehabilitate or reconstruct much of its network of urban freeway pavements. A strategy has been developed by the Caltrans Accelerate Pavement Testing (CAL/APT) program to reconstruct these pavements with a flexible pavement incorporating design features that minimize the thickness of the(More)
A multimedia framework and model are employed, to embrace the interactive and visual presentation of a series of case-studies with large conventional (static), and multi-mode (dynamic) data sets. This identifies multifaceted presentation requirements. Graphs are utilised to enable rigorous multimedia system (MMS) design, effortless updates and unproblematic(More)
This work describes the application of a direct search method to the optimization of problems of real industrial interest, namely three new material science applications designed with the FactSage software. The search method is BiMADS, the biobjective version of the mesh adaptive direct search (MADS) algorithm, designed for blackbox optimization. We give a(More)
Multimedia environments are utilised to construct presentation systems, introducing some advanced interactive features. Aspects of this research involve the organisation, presentation and interaction of complex industrial case-study data, arising from Computational Fluid Dynamic simulations and experimental trials (multimedia streams and static instances).(More)
