The research is part of the web-based Virtual Material Processing (VMP) project underway at Ohio University (OU). The primary objective of this project was to develop a methodology and software that will use Artificial Intelligence (AI), Simulation and Modeling coupled with VR (virtual reality concepts) and Dynamic Resource Management (DRM) for the automated design, analysis and visualization of various material forming processes. The environment is designed to be platform independent and accessible over the World Wide Web (WWW). Industry/Government researchers and academicians can access the environment and perform process selection, product design, development and simulation on the web. This paper focuses on load balancing and distributed processing of user requests.
