Jeremy Smith, an ORNL/University of Tennessee Governor’s Chair, uses both Titan and SNS to understand the overall function and structure of proteins.
The U.S. Department of Energy has signed a contract with IBM to bring a next-generation supercomputer to ORNL. The OLCF’s new hybrid CPU/GPU computing system, Summit, will be delivered in 2018.
For many researchers, Titan is only part of the picture; managing and understanding data are quickly becoming as important as the simulations that create it.
Princeton’s Jeroen Tromp is part of a team using Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s (ORNL’s) Titan supercomputer, to reveal the Earth’s inner workings via adjoint tomography simulations, or monitoring the interaction of a forward wavefield, in which the waves travel from the source to the receivers, and an “adjoint” wavefield in which the waves travel inversely from the receivers to the source.
Jackie Chen, of Sandia National Laboratories, uses the OLCF’s Titan supercomputer to study the combustion of a wide variety of fuels.
A team of researchers, led by Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Pratul Agarwal, is seeking to obtain key insights into the fundamental underpinnings of how enzymes work and, in particular, what makes them such great catalysts.
Of particular importance to Bhattacharjee’s team is reconnection and shocks in systems where the plasma particles do not collide very often, both of which can serve as mechanisms for cosmic ray acceleration.
The Ken Kennedy Institute for Information Technology at Rice University hosted its annual Oil and Gas HPC Workshop in Houston, Texas.
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.
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.
