TACC & ANSYS Power Firefly Space Systems


This week Firefly Space Systems announced a collaboration with ANSYS and TACC to help design next-generation rockets.

LBNL Researchers Work on New Materials to Shrink Computer Chips


Are we approaching the end of Moore’s Law? In this video, Berkeley Lab Staff Scientist Deirdre Olynick describes how the Lab is working to develop new new photoresist materials that will enable computer chips to get smaller and faster.

NCMS Becomes Affiliate to Joint Center for Energy Storage Research


The National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS) has become an affiliate to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR).

Lab Directors Talk HPC at Unprecedented Round Table


In an unprecedented conversation, the directors of four national laboratories gathered electronically for a roundtable discussion about high-performance computing. The participants were Paul Hommer (Sandia), Charles McMillan (Los Alamos National Laboratory), William Goldstein (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory), Thom Mason (Oak Ridge National Laboratory); and Robert Meisner (DOE ASC Advanced Strategic Computing Office).

DoE Grant to Bolster Welding Simulation in the Cloud


The DOE has awarded Emc2 $1 million to develop a cloud-based tool that will simulate welding processes employed in the manufacture of metallic products.

PASC14 Visualization Winner Shows Coaxial Jet Flow


This simulation visualizes a coaxial jet flow as it can be found in the exhaust of modern jet engines that are used for aircraft propulsion. The visualization highlights the flow instability process and the transition from laminar to turbulent flow. Intensive mixing between the heated primary jet and the cold bypass flow lead to strong noise radiation.

How Collaboration is Driving Simulation Software at Airbus


“The goal at Airbus is to create a single fully integrated simulation-driven design process. He explained that they are developing simulation to the point where it is implemented from “conceptual design, to detailed design, all the way to the certification of the aircraft and finally to the continued development of the aircraft.”

Simpack Acquired by Dassault Systèmes


Dassault Systèmes has announced the acquisition of Simpack, a provider of multi-body simulation technologies and solutions.

HPC Analyst Crossfire from ISC’14


In this video from ISC’14, Addison Snell from Intersect360 Research moderates the conference closing session with HPC Analyst Crossfire. Panelists include: Michael Resch (HLRS), Yoon Ho (Rolls-Royce), Jean-Marc Denis (Bull), and Brian Connors (IBM).
