Computer aided engineering (CAE) is an essential in the engineering field. Various CAE softwares have been developed in science and engineering. Recently non-expert users have opportunities to use the CAE tools. In this study, we developed a platform and the related base modules to solve target problems by CAEs. The modules visualize 3D models by WebGL (Web Graphics Library) through general web browsers. Additionally, we have constructed a problem solving environment (PSE) for CAE by integrating the platform and the basic modules. The PSE for CAE was developed based on open-source softwares. Since the PSE is a web-based service, every user can use any devices which have a web browser. Therefore, the PSE is a useful tool for non-expert and educational CAE users.
