Titan allows advanced scientific applications to reach unprecedented speeds, enabling scientific breakthroughs faster than ever with only a marginal increase in power consumption.
A team led by ORNL’s Jeremy Smith, the director of ORNL’s Center for Molecular Biophysics and a Governor’s Chair at the University of Tennessee, has uncovered information that could help others harvest energy from plant mass.
Titan is allowing scientists to simulate proton-coupled electron transfer at a level that was previously impossible.
To prepare California for the next “big one,” SCEC joint researchers are simulating earthquakes at high frequencies for more detailed predictions that are needed by structural engineers on Titan.
Using computational molecular dynamics simulations, researchers at ORNL and the University of Tennessee–ORNL Joint Institute for Computational Sciences have discovered a molecular “switch” in a receptor that controls cell behavior.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science announced 59 projects for 2014, sharing nearly 6 billion core hours on two of America’s fastest supercomputers dedicated to open science.
Researchers simulating high-temperature superconductors has topped 15 petaflops on ORNL’s Titan supercomputer. More importantly, they did it with an algorithm that substantially overcomes two major roadblocks to realistic superconductor modeling.
Scientists from Germany’s HZDR–Dresden used Titan, the most powerful supercomputer in the United States located at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, to simulate billions of particles in two passing plasma jet streams.
The OLCF delivered more than 374 million supercomputer core hours to 17 projects through the Department of Energy’s ALCC program—76 million hours more than expected.
A simulation of the internal workings of cells has reached a sustained performance of 20,000 trillion calculations per second, or 20 petaflops, on the Titan supercomputer at ORNL.
