The Department of Energy has backed the Consortium for Advanced Simulation of Light Water Reactors at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. This sweeping five-year effort will unleash the power of HPC to simulate innovative designs that could dramatically improve nuclear safety, output, and waste reduction.
Dr. Steven E. Koonin, Under Secretary for Science, examines the link between computer simulation and scientific progress.
HPCC Conference speakers talk up HPC democratization.
The White House hosted a press conference on Wednesday to announce a new public-private partnership that aims to bring HPC technology to the have-nots of the US manufacturing sector. Using a $2 million grant from the US Department of Commerce and an additional $2.5 million investment from industrial partners, a consortium has been formed to broaden the use of HPC technology by small manufacturing enterprises (SMEs).
What if researchers could access and share scientific simulation and modeling tools as easily as YouTube videos with the power of the cloud to drive it all? That’s the underlying premise for the HUBzero Platform for Scientific Collaboration, a cyberinfrastructure developed at Purdue University.
Using high performance computing to help modernize US manufacturing is one of those good ideas that seems inevitable but always just out of reach. A recent study confirms this, and provides a framework for strengthening the HPC landscape in this sector.
Virtual world games and other simulation programs offer life-saving potential.
The launch of Johns Hopkins University Center for Advanced Modeling in the Social, Behavioral and Health Sciences brings the power of computer-based simulation to bear on a host of real-world hardships.
Just as the electric power infrastructure was the key to a strong manufacturing base a century ago, a digital manufacturing infrastructure is critical to the future of American industry. Economic uncertainty and leaden growth have slowed innovation, but access to cutting edge tools such as high performance modeling and simulation provide a bold path forward, essentially transforming the way we build and thrive.
Outdated beliefs stand in the way of greater CFD adoption.
