Currently, various hardware and software companies are developing augmented reality devices, most prominently Microsoft with its Hololens. Besides gaming, such devices can be used for serious pervasive applications, like interactive mobile simulations to support engineers in the field. Interactive simulations have high demands on resources, which the mobile device alone is unable to satisfy. Therefore, we propose a framework to support mobile simulations by distributing the computation between mobile device and a remote server. For the computation of parameter-dependent solutions of the simulation, we use the reduced basis method, which allows to drastically reduce the computation time and energy consumption. We present three approaches for the distributed execution of the reduced basis method between mobile device and server. Evaluations show that we can speed-up the numerical computation to over 131 times while using 73 times less energy compared to offloading everything to a server.
