Abstract. We describe the software architecture of a system for doing multi-physics simulation of a coupled fluid, thermal, and mechanical fracture problem. The system is organized as a collection of geographically-distributed software components in which each component provides a web service, and uses standard web-service protocols to interact with other components. The resulting system incorporates many features such as componentization and geographical distribution which we believe are vital to adaptive and dynamic data-driven application systems (DDDAS).
