Ice-Repellant Materials One Step Closer

Sep 12, 2013 |

Scientists at GE Global Research are using the multi-petaflop Titan supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory to study the way that ice forms as water droplets come in contact with cold surfaces. They are working to develop “icephobic” materials that prevent ice formation and accumulation.

Lustre Founder Spots Haskell on HPC Horizon

Jun 24, 2013 |

According to Lustre founder and current CEO of Parallel Scientific, languages that buck the mainstream trend, including Haskell, could find further inroads into HPC as models, data sizes and overall complexity grow. We spoke with Braam at ISC and discovered that like Python, there are…

Oak Ridge Supercomputers Modeling Nuclear Future

May 9, 2011 |

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.

Climate Modelers Have Insatiable Appetite for HPC

Mar 14, 2011 |

Since the dawn of high performance computing, climate modeling has been one of its most demanding domains. The hunger for computational capability is unending, as researchers work to incorporate more of nature’s complexity into their models at higher resolutions. HPCwire talked with NOAA/GFDL Deputy Director Brian Gross and Venkatramani Balaji, head of the lab’s Modeling Systems Group.

Games That Matter
