Supercomputing Impacts Deep Water Oil Rig Safety

Apr 13, 2015 |

As even a casual newswatcher knows, offshore drilling can be a dangerous enterprise. Among the safety hazards is the ocean itself with its unpredictable and sometimes intense currents exerting forces on the floating platform. Researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory used advanced simulation software to help improve the safety of ultra-deep floating oil rigs by studying how the surrounding currents Read more…

Running Computational Fluid Dynamics in the Cloud

May 16, 2013 |

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.

Swift Engineering & Platform HPC: Designing Faster Race Cars and Planes

Aug 29, 2011 |

Swift Engineering, a leader in the design and manufacture of composite structures, including race cars and aircraft, began using high computing power for Computational Fluid Dynamics applications, but its in-house solution was not scalable. Swift turned to Platform Computing to enable engineers to evaluate concepts within hours instead of days.

Lighting a Fire Under Combustion Simulation

Jun 1, 2011 |

Combustion simulation might seem like the ultimate in esoteric technologies, but auto companies, aircraft firms and fuel designers need increasingly sophisticated software to serve the needs of 21st century engine designs. HPCwire recently got the opportunity to take a look at Reaction Design, one of the premier makers of combustion simulation software, and talk with its CEO, Bernie Rosenthal.
