A project led by the University of Southampton is providing new insights into the complex nature of turbulence. Together with 27 academics and researchers from across eight universities, the UK Turbulence Consortium will meet next month to share their findings on the fundamental aspects of turbulence using numerical simulations. Despite its crucial importance in many […]
Over at the CBR Blog, Ben Sullivan writes that the Caterham Formula 1 racing team is using HPC from Dell to better understand aerodymanics and reduce lap times. CFD means you can look at the airflow over and through various components of the car, and this simulation allows us to filter so that we can […]
If awards are any indication, the Titan supercomputer at ORNL is having a productive, inaugural year. Four out of six Gordon Bell Prize finalists used Titan to overcome complex computational challenges in their fields. From the dynamics of millions of crowded proteins to the billions of particles that radiate from passing plasma jets, ultra-high-resolution simulations […]
Today Penguin Computing announced its new Arctica line of Ethernet network switches, the first products on the market with Cumulus Linux pre-installed. The network world is moving from proprietary network stacks to an open ecosystem that offers more choice, cost-effectiveness and flexibility.
