In this video from SIGHPC, Wilf Pinfold from Concurrent Systems hosts GE’s Brian Mitchell in a discussion on how HPC is used to design jet engines. As part of the SC Conference HPC Matters campaign, the presentation is part of an effort to showcase how high performance computing has an impact on our daily lives.
“This webinar replay discusses the use of high performance computing (HPC) in the design of aircraft jet engines and gas turbines used to generate electrical power. HPC is the critical enabler in this process, but applying HPC effectively in an industrial design setting requires an integrated hardware/software solution and a clear understanding of how the value outweighs the costs. This webinar will share GE’s perspective on the successful deployment and utilization of HPC, offer examples of HPC’s impact on GE products, and discuss future trends.”
SIGHPC is the first international group within a major professional society that is devoted exclusively to the needs of students, faculty, and practitioners in high performance computing. SIGHPC’s mission is to help spread the use of HPC, help raise the standards of the profession, and help ensure a rich and rewarding career for people involved in the field.
