NICE to Demo Technical Computing Apps in the Cloud at SC15

Today Italy’s NICE Software announced plans to demonstrate their latest remote visualization technologies at SC15 in Austin. Enhanced products include new release of NICE Desktop Cloud Visualization (DCV), improvements for ParaView users developed in collaboration with Kitware on NVIDIA GPUs, and the latest release of SGI VizServer powered by NICE software.

Video: HPC Transforms Diagnostic Medical Imaging

In this video, Justin Baba from the University of Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory describes how HPC transforms medical diagnostic imaging. “A lot of studies have been published on the impact of detecting or tracking the polarization of photons,” Baba says. “But there isn’t much understanding of what is actually occurring as these photons are scattering and propagating through the media. We have captured step by step what is taking place at each scattering event and the effects on the photons’ properties due to a scattering event. So we are able to elucidate what is already out there in the literature.”

Video: HPC in the Design of Aircraft Engines

“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.”

Is MDX the Future of Engineering Simulation?

“By adopting an MDX philosophy, engineers are able to test designs automatically from the early concept stages and against all of the physical factors that might influence a system’s performance. It assesses which set of design parameters will break a system, and which will improve it. This pushes back the simulation process to force engineers to question every assumption they have made within a design, and optimise it appropriately by assessing a simulation with multiple operating scenarios.”

Intelligent Light: Breaking the Disk IO Bottleneck in CFD by Eliminating It

“FieldView products and services from Intelligent Light have been specifically developed to help CFD users get more reliable results in less time from their CFD investments. Post-processing can be the most important step in the CFD process -this is where the “pay off” occurs – where you gain insight and make decisions. Yet it is often overlooked when planning effective CFD workflows.”

LLNL & Rensselaer Polytechnic to Promote Industrial HPC

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute will combine decades of expertise to help American industry and businesses expand use of high performance computing under a recently signed memorandum of understanding.

Next-generation Subsurface Flow Simulations on Titan

Researchers are using the Titan supercomputer to power next-generation subsurface flow simulations. Improved models could benefit carbon sequestration, contaminant transport, and oil recovery research.

Video: HPC for the Louisiana Coastal Master Plan

Zachary Cobell from ARCADIS-US presented this talk at the HPC User Forum. “As a global leader for designing sustainable coastlines and waterways, ARCADIS believes in developing multi-faceted, integrated solutions to restore, protect, and enhance sensitive coastal areas. We are working with the Army Corps and the state of Louisiana to design these projects with and from nature, in effect using nature as a dynamic engine.”

AMD Forms Radeon Technologies Group for Graphics & Immersive Computing

Today AMD announced the promotion of Raja Koduri to senior vice president and chief architect, Radeon Technologies Group, reporting to president and CEO Dr. Lisa Su. In his expanded role, Koduri is responsible for overseeing all aspects of graphics technologies used in AMD’s APU, discrete GPU, semi-custom, and GPU compute products.

Video: Stunning Simulation Shows Comet in the Solar Wind

In what has to be one of the most beautiful simulations I’ve ever seen, this video from the European Space Agency shows simulated interaction of solar winds with 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, the famous comet targeted the Rosetta mission. “The simulated conditions represent those expected at 1.3 AU from the Sun, close to perihelion, where the comet is strongly active.”
