In this paper we present the MASSIVE project that aims to use grid technology to establish an enabling environment for distributed simulation and visualization of large-scale scientific and engineering research. The project focuses on collaborative numerical simulation and visualization in grid environments. Furthermore, the project is also to develop grid-enabled capability and products for use by the wider community. The current status of the MASSIVE project is reported and a prototype grid utilizing resources at the Center for Engineering and Scientific Computation (CESC) in ZheJiang University (ZJU) is discussed. This grid gets a model geometry generated by CAD systems and transfers it to an SGI Onyx 3900 supercomputer where it is meshed. The meshed geometry is then transferred to a DAWNING PC cluster where it is used to solve computational fluid dynamics and computational solid mechanics problems and it is finally visualized showing numerical results.
