Video: Next-Gen Hurricane Prediction


“Since Hurricane Katrina made landfall in 20015, storm prediction technology has seen dramatic forward movement, from improved software to better use of observations and increased computing power – all aimed at giving emergency decision makers more time and specifics to help protect lives and property. The expert panelists in this Congressional Briefing outline research advances that have led to better forecasting of hurricane and tropical storm weather and impacts. And they spotlight research directions that hold promise for future improvements.”

XSEDE Powers Polymer Research at MIT

Confined to a tube to approximate the spaghetti-like motion of entangled polymers, a rod–coil block copolymer (rod in blue, coils in pink) moves through a sea of molecules. Flow is impeded when a molecule with a rod passes through a curved portion of the tube (denoted in red). [Image credit: Muzhou “Mitchell” Wang and Christopher N. Lam, Massachusetts Institute of Technology.]

Researchers at MIT are using XSEDE resources to study polymers, the chemical compounds used to make plastic, rubber, and more.

Cobham Updates Opera Mulitphysics Software

Opera v18 features a new Winding Tool that enables users to quickly assess different winding configurations in rotating electrical machines.

Cobham has updated their Opera electromagnetic and multiphysics design software. According to Cobham, the Version 18 release of this finite element analysis and simulation software incorporates numerous enhancements to boost functionality, speed and accuracy, while further improving ease of use.

Video: Teens Apply HPC at SDSC Summer Program


In this video, student participants in Research Experience for High School Students (REHS) program discuss their experiences using HPC resources at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego (SDSC).

BlueBEAR HPC Service Supports Proton Therapy Research

Dr Tony Price tests a CMOS Censor for the Range Telescope.

Researchers at the University of Lincoln in the U.K. are using the BlueBEAR HPC service to simulate the use of protons for CT imaging. Generally reliant on X-rays to image the body’s composition and healthy tissue location before treatment, doctors are looking to the the project to build a device capable of delivering protons in a clinical setting.
