New Algorithm for Real-Time Simulations in Materials Research

Model of ion (Cl) collision with atomically thin semiconductor (MoSe2). Collision region is shown in blue and zoomed in; red points show initial positions of Cl. The simulation calculates the energy loss of the ion based on the incident and emergent velocities of the Cl.

Researchers at LBNL have have developed a new algorithm that opens the door for real-time simulations in atomic-level materials research. “By eliminating higher energy terms, you significantly reduce the dimension of your problem, and you can also use a bigger time step,” explained Wang, describing the key to the algorithm’s success: Solving the equations in bigger time steps reduces the computational cost and increases the speed of the simulations.

“The UberCloud Community brings together over 3,000 participants to pave the way for the Technical Computing Cloud. UberCloud Experiment teams explore the end-to-end process of accessing remote computing resources in HPC centers and in the Cloud to study and overcome the potential roadblocks for industry applications such as CAE, Bio and Life Sciences.”

How OpenCL Could Open the Gates for FPGAs

opencl

“The silver bullet in HLS is the ability to take a sequential description that has been written in C and then find this parallelism, the concurrencies, without the user having to think. That was a necessary technology before we could do anything. It has been adopted by thousands of users already as a standalone technology, but what we do is embed that technology inside OpenCL compilers so that now it can be utilised in full software mode and it is fully compatible with OpenCL.”

Utilizing Cloud HPC Resources for CAE Simulations

rescale

“As cloud resources increase, users should be cognizant of the HPC platforms available in the cloud. Scalable and customizable resources are readily available, however, security, ease of use, and full integration of simulation software are important factors to consider when choosing to run analyses remotely. Cloud resources designed for engineering and science CAE simulations allow users to leverage high performance computing to fully explore the design space and develop innovative products. In this presentation, Joris will discuss the cloud HPC market trends, CAE simulations using cloud HPC, cloud software integration for CAE use, security around HPC cloud environments, data management and collaboration.”
