ORNL HPC INDUSTRIAL PARTNERSHIPS PROGRAM
For years, academia has looked to simulation to solve some of science’s most complex problems. Recently, industry has taken notice—America’s most powerful machines are now helping its most powerful companies. Take Jaguar and Boeing, for example.
Jaguar helps allow BMI to complete the modeling phase of the Smart Truck project approximately ten times faster than otherwise possible.
Computer modelling is being used to improve the airflow around big trucks and reduce their fuel consumption.
Independent software developers are introduced to SciDAC tools and applications to aid in the transition to multicore systems
BMI Corporation is combining their aerospace and race care design expertise with the power of the OLCF’s Jaguar supercomputer to create a new, long haul “SmartTruck” that will increase fuel efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.
BMI’s Mike Henderson discusses the aerodynamic analysis of semi-tractor trailers, research that could greatly enhance the efficiency of one of America’s most important shipping mediums.
Mike Idelchik explains the energy goals of GE Global Research, particularly the development of efficient wind turbines through simulation.
