An application portal has been developed to support the execution of a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) numerical model that simulates hydrodynamic flow instability of the coaxial injector in the liquid rocket engine. The CFD application has been integrated into a web-based portal framework so that users can utilize resources available in grid computing environment. The portal provides users with a single sign-on access point that connects grid computing resources available in the users virtual organization. The portal developed in this project is built in the framework of GridSphere and Grid Portlet package. In addition to the default services offered by the GridSphere, extra service modules have been developed in order to provide customized features for the specific needs of the numerical model. The portal development was conducted as an international collaborative research between NCSA and Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI).
