Even the most powerful supercomputers cannot be productive without suitable operating software and applications. In engineering, finite element analysis (FEA) is used to create 3D digital models of large structures to simulate how they perform under different real-world conditions (stress, vibration, heat, etc.). The challenge of modeling large-scale structures, such as mining equipment, buildings, and oil Read more…
As we look to the future applications for exascale-class computers, the grand science challenges are often first on the list. From modeling the climate to the underpinnings of the universe, the problems most often associated with exascale computing are epic in scope. However, the range of complex, multidisciplinary engineering problems that can be solved with Read more…
It is widely accepted that HPC provides countries with critical scientific advantages and increased economic standing, yet not everyone signs off on this idea. Supercomputing can be a tough strategy to sell when the expenditures that are required – for hardware, software, expertise and operating expenses – are substantial. India, with a burgeoning HPC ecosystem, Read more…
