Brown University in Rhode Island is seeking an Executive Director for their Center for Computation and Visualization in our Job of the Week.
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.
“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.”
“Instead of mass workstation upgrades, Remote Visualization allows incremental provisioning, on-demand allocation, better management and efficient distribution of interactive sessions and licenses. Racked workstations or blades typically have lower maintenance, cooling, replacement costs, and they can extend workstation (or laptop) life as “thin clients”.
The Swiss Supercomputing Centre CSCS has published a set of Visualization and Graphics tutorials. Presented by Jean Favre from CSCS, the tutorial is broken up into two segments.
“Dr. Goh joined SGI in 1989, becoming a chief engineer in 1998 and then chief technology officer in 2001. He oversees technical computing programs with the goal to develop the next generation computer architecture for the new many-core era. His current research interest is in the emerging need for in situ or integrated visualization of Big Data.”
