Simulation of solid rocket motors requires coupling physical models and software tools from multiple disciplines, and in turn demands advanced techniques to integrate independently developed physics solvers effectively. In this paper, we overview some computer science components required for such integration. We package these components into a software framework that provides system support of high-level data management and performance monitoring, as well as computational services such as novel and robust algorithms for tracking Lagrangian surface meshes, parallel mesh optimization, and data transfer between nonmatching meshes. From these reusable framework components we construct domain-specific building blocks to facilitate integration of parallel, multiphysics simulations from high-level specifications. Through examples, we demonstrate the flexibility of our framework and its components.
