In an effort to study the complex fluid dynamics and chemical reactions occurring inside a jet engine combustor, researchers from United Technologies Research Center have teamed up with experts at the OLCF to develop more comprehensive modeling methods.
To proactively address the increasing demand for experts in data center experts, OLCF staff joined forces with the University of Tennessee to collaboratively teach a course dedicated to data center management.
A research team led by Jefferson Lab’s Robert Edwards has been using computation to inform GlueX experiments at Jefferson Lab as well as corroborate experimental findings.
In 1980, the US and Japan formed the Joint Institute for Fusion Theory to improve collaboration on fusion research. This year, a three-day JIFT workshop came to ORNL.
ORiGAMI, a tool to help doctors discover connections between symptoms, diseases, and drug interactions, was recently made open-source, and is up for an R&D 100 Award.
A multi-institution team led by University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) professor David Ceperley is using high-performance computing resources at OLCF to compare and corroborate experimental findings pertaining to a variety of novel materials.
OLCF staff actively participated in this year’s International Supercomputing Conference, which ran June 19-23 in Frankfurt, Germany.
To improve input/output for its FireFOAM, the FM Global team partnered with OLCF staffer Norbert Podhorszki and Mark Olesen of ESI-OpenCFD, an organization that contributes to the development of OpenFOAM, to implement the OLCF’s Adaptable I/O System (ADIOS).
DOE employees converged on the San Francisco Bay Area for the 22nd annual Bay Area Maker Faire, which ran May 20 to May 22. The OLCF staff took a modified version of Tiny Titan—a mini parallel computer made of several Raspberry Pi computers that helps educate students about the principles of parallel computing—to inspire a new generation of high-performance computing (HPC) enthusiasts.
After their work simulating the calcium-48 nucleus, a team led by ORNL’s Gaute Hagen continued its work by moving to a larger, heavier, and more complex isotope—calcium-52—and the results surprised the researchers once again.
