Abstract: This thesis presents two Problem Solving Environments that enable engineers in industry to utilise complex computational simulation algorithms during their design processes. The work addresses the issues of allowing the end user to interact with the algorithms in a user-friendly manner through the use of graphical user interface design and advanced computer graphics. Throughout this thesis major emphasis is placed on being able to tackle a wide range of problem sizes from routine to grand challenge simulations through the use of parallel computing hardware. The effectiveness of both the environments in their domain is demonstrated using a series of examples.
