ADIOS Ignites Combustion Simulations

Oct 29, 2009 |

A team of researchers from Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Georgia Tech, and Rutgers University developed the ADaptable I/O file System (ADIOS), an I/O middleware package that has shown great promise with leading fusion and astrophysics codes. Recently, ADIOS made its mark in the field of combustion.

Fusion Gets Faster

Jul 27, 2009 |

When it comes to scientific computing, the amount of science reaped from a simulation is largely determined by the speed and scalability of the software. Likewise, a code’s speed is often at the mercy of its I/O performance. The more efficient the I/O, the faster the code and the more simulations can be run over a period of time.
