Abstract—Simulating physical phenomena can be computationally very demanding, making the distributed approach attractive. Scientific computing and other computationally complex tasks are often performed on dedicated cluster or grid of computers usually running some distribution of Linux operating system. In this article we propose a simulation framework that can utilize general purpose computers running Windows operating system to share available computational resources. The proposed system is composed of simulation client, the network of distributors, and workers. The presented framework has architecture and design that provides a flexible and efficient system with good scalability and fault tolerance properties. The performed tests on the prototype application show that our approach is viable.

Index Terms—Distributed architecture, distributed simulation, network application, non-blocking socket, physical simulation.
