We anticipate that the ease, flexibility, accuracy and speed of HyperWorks Virtual Wind Tunnel will make it very popular not only across the auto industry but also in other fields where external aerodynamic simulation is crucial, such as architectural design and construction and wind-turbine development.
SC13 is seeking submissions for their “Walk-in Video Loop” of scientific visualizations. Displayed on the big screen before and after the plenary sessions, these videos will showcase the state-of-the-art in simulation footage. These videos will be projected on a 32’ by 18’ high definition surface and should have at least a 1920×1080 pixel resolution at […]
Over at NICS, Hanneke Weitering writes researchers are developing new technologies that could help us plan for castostrophic solar storms. In this effort, Homa Karimabadi, group leader of space plasma simulations at the University of California, San Diego, has teamed up with visualization specialist Burlen Loring of LBNL to create a topological map of Earth’s […]
The Sandia and Los Alamos National Labs have partnered to develop a 3-D model of the Earth’s mantle that can pinpoint earthquakes and explosions.
This video shows a volume rendering of a test simulation for the Eagle project. The intensity corresponds to the density of cosmic gas, whilst color encodes its temperature. Red roughly corresponds to 100,000 degrees Kelvin (considered ‘warm’ by astronomers), whilst white corresponds to 10-100 million degrees Kelvin. The core aim of the EAGLE project is […]
In this Wall Street Journal video, Joe Curley from Intel describes how supercomputing is used for severe weather forecasting.
In this video from the UCAR Software Engineering Assembly, Don Morton from ARSC presents: Building Python-Based Operational Systems for Prediction of Atmospheric Processes. In the context of atmospheric models, operational systems are those that dependably provide important, time-critical forecasts for use in decision-support systems. They are characterized by the need for rapid data acquisition and […]
Los Alamos National Laboratory has selected visualisation specialist Christie for an upgrade to its Powerwall Theater (PWT), an innovative facility that enables researchers to view the complex models and simulations they have created using some of the world’s fastest supercomputers. The theatre will feature 40 Christie Mirage WU-L WUXGA DLP 3D LED projectors in a […]
Researchers at the LSU Center for Computation & Technology are using high performance visualization to explore the fate of oil spilled during the Deepwater Horizon incident in 2010. In simple terms, researchers from the LSU’s DOCS, namely Dr. Dubravko Justic, Lixia Wang, Dr. Nan Walker and others, make multiple geoscientific and model simulation data sets […]
Today Nvidia announced the GeoInt Accelerator, a GPU-accelerated geospatial intelligence platform to enable security analysts to find actionable insights quicker and more accurately than ever before from vast quantities of raw data, images and video. Today’s intelligence analyst needs information based on imagery, video, signals intelligence, human intelligence and other sources, in a geospatial context […]
