Exascale’s New Frontier: Combustion-Pele

PI: Jacqueline Chen, Sandia National Laboratories In 2016, the Department of Energy’s Exascale Computing Project (ECP) set out to develop advanced software for the arrival of exascale-class supercomputers capable of a quintillion (1018) or more calculations per second. That meant rethinking, reinventing, and optimizing dozens of scientific applications and software…

Summit Fires up Predictive Breakthrough for Gas Turbines

Gas-fired turbines keep electric generators humming around the world, from power plants and factories to hospitals and universities. But the combustion process that fuels these engines comes with a billion-dollar-a-year problem: Under the wrong conditions, the resulting heat and noise can cause tremors and vibrations known as thermoacoustic oscillations, which…

Igniting a New Class of Combustion Research

In a farewell nod to Titan, scheduled to be decommissioned in August 2019, we present a short series of features highlighting some of Titan’s impactful contributions to scientific research. The internal combustion engine has been around since the 19th century and remains the most affordable, reliable way to power the…
