The application of knowledge to real-world problems is the payoff of scientific research. Engineering is reaching new heights with the help of some of the world’s leading supercomputers at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF). Researchers are using the speed and power of Summit, the nation’s fastest computer, to improve various processes and bring innovation to the marketplace. From more efficient automotive engines to more durable airplanes, tomorrow’s technological breakthroughs may very well be the result of today’s computational engineering.
