GE Aerospace Research and GE Aerospace have pioneered the use of Oak Ridge National Laboratory‘s Frontier, an HPE Cray EX supercomputer. They’re employing computational fluid dynamics simulations to model complex turbulent flow, studying the performance of open fan engine architecture for the next-generation aircraft engine (RISE) potentially cutting CO2 emissions by over 20% and redefining the future of flight.


University of Birmingham researchers used its BlueBEAR (Lenovo, with Intel CPUs and IBM Storage Scale, supplied by OCF Limited) supercomputer to analyze manufacturing process data from a novel inline sensor and developed a model that predicts critical quality attributes of the end product, with the aim of reducing waste and improving the sustainability of the pharmaceutical manufacturing processes.

Working together, the National Energy Technology Laboratory, Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, and Cerebras Systems accelerated their research on the Rayleigh–Bénard convection problem. They achieved the world’s first fluid flow solution using the Wafer-Scale Engine, promising substantial speed and energy efficiency.
