Using TACC Supercomputers to Design Safer Offshore Oil Platforms

platform

Researchers are using TACC supercomputers to design next-generation of offshore floating platforms. “Technip has one of the largest computer clusters among engineering companies, but the simulations would take weeks to complete, said Jang Kim, Chief Technical Advisor at Technip. “Stampede has allowed us to run simulations in one day or even overnight. We are then able to get these safer designs out into use faster.”

Interview: NSU to Boost Research with “Megalodon” IBM Supercomputer

ibm_guys

“The team at the Graduate School of Computer and Information Sciences wanted to give the computer a nickname – a name that would not only convey the super computer’s enormity in terms of size; but a name that would definitively link the super computer to NSU. Our mascot is the “shark” and the Megalodon, is the largest prehistoric shark known to man.”
