In this paper we present an interactive software prototype for fluid flow problems in civil engineering including: 

  • Computational Steering based optimization of an HVAC system 
  • Measuring, Control and Regulation Techniques for the HVAC systems based on software agents 
  • Automated dimensioning of an air-conditioning system via agent-controlled batch runs. 
  • Integration into a VR-Environment 
  • High performance computing and efficient methods for model transfers (e.g. automatic grid generation). 
  • A web-based multi-user access as a co-operative framework for engineers of different disciplines. 
  • High-level control functions for the design process
