The OLCF’s Jack Wells was an invited speaker at the American Astronomical Society’s (AAS’s) Exascale Radio Astronomy conference from March 30 to April 4 in Monterrey, CA, where he detailed recent advances in computational astrophysics on Department of Energy supercomputing systems such as Titan.
This year’s March Meeting of the American Physical Society featured a focus session on computational materials research proposed and led by ORNL’s Jack Wells.
Three industry-related visualizations, created at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility, were highlighted at the fourth annual National User Facility Organization (NUFO) science expo and reception.
Ramgen Power Systems is using the Titan supercomputer managed by the OLCF to optimize novel designs based on aerospace shock wave compression technology for gas compression systems, such as carbon dioxide compressors.
To increase efficiency and enhance nuclear safety, a team led by Igor Bolotnov of North Carolina State University has turned to Titan to perform state-of-the-art direct numerical simulation (DNS) to characterize such turbulent bubbly flows.
The Bio-IT conference, which took place from April 29 to May 1, hosted more than 2,500 participants from the life sciences, healthcare, pharmaceutical, and IT industries representing more than 30 countries.
Titan’s stability translates into an improved experience for Titan users. Fewer unscheduled outages and node failures reduce job interruptions, allowing jobs to run to completion with fewer restarts.
Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility staff members Robert French, Adam Simpson, Suzanne Parete-Koon, and Anthony DiGirolamo developed Tiny Titan, which is substantially tinier than Titan in size and cost.
