Visualization Cave at Brown

Brown University in Rhode Island is seeking an Executive Director for their Center for Computation and Visualization in our Job of the Week.

PASC14 Visualization Winner Shows Coaxial Jet Flow

jet

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.”

“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”.

Online Visualization and Graphics Tutorials from CSCS

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.

“The Living Heart Project is a model for how collaborations can work to advance regulatory science in the medical device industry and improve patient access to cutting-edge medical technology.”

Supercomputing the Turbulent Birth of Stars

Florent Renaud

Using very high-resolution numerical simulations, astrophysicists at the CEA and CNRS, led by Florent Renaud, have, for the very first time, achieved a detailed analysis of the effects of turbulence generated when two galaxies collide.
