In this video from the 2014 HPCAC Stanford HPC & Exascale Conference, Frank Ham from Cascade Technologies presents: Leveraging National Computing Resources for Simulation-based Discovery.
On an annual basis, the US government awards 10’s of billions of HPC core-hours to projects seeking to answer questions in science and engineering through large-scale simulations. In this talk, I will share several examples of insights into flow physics phenomena achieved through these programs, including settling the debate on the origination of crackle in high-speed jets, and discovering global instabilities in high-speed combustion systems. Just as important as the fast scalable solvers that underpin these simulations are the infrastructure tools that allow the careful design of simulations, and the analysis of the resulting massive data sets.”
