Cobham Updates Opera Mulitphysics Software

Opera v18 features a new Winding Tool that enables users to quickly assess different winding configurations in rotating electrical machines.

Cobham has updated their Opera electromagnetic and multiphysics design software. According to Cobham, the Version 18 release of this finite element analysis and simulation software incorporates numerous enhancements to boost functionality, speed and accuracy, while further improving ease of use.

Video: Teens Apply HPC at SDSC Summer Program


In this video, student participants in Research Experience for High School Students (REHS) program discuss their experiences using HPC resources at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego (SDSC).

BlueBEAR HPC Service Supports Proton Therapy Research

Dr Tony Price tests a CMOS Censor for the Range Telescope.

Researchers at the University of Lincoln in the U.K. are using the BlueBEAR HPC service to simulate the use of protons for CT imaging. Generally reliant on X-rays to image the body’s composition and healthy tissue location before treatment, doctors are looking to the the project to build a device capable of delivering protons in a clinical setting.

Transtec Powers Remote Visualization at ISC 2015


In this video from ISC 2015, Oliver Tennert from Transtec describes how the company’s Remote Visualization solutions are empowering customers with flexibility for their computing workloads. “We have a lot of customers from the scientific as well as financial or telecommunications areas, where analyzing huge amounts of data in the shortest period of time possible is a critical factor of success.”

NICE Releases EnginFrame 2015


Today Nice Software in Italy announced the release of EnginFrame 2015, the most powerful and easy-to-use web-based front end for accessing technical and scientific applications in the cloud.

Solar Superstorms Documentary Powered by Blue Waters


A new high-resolution science documentary about the dynamics of the Sun will feature data-driven supercomputer visualizations produced by NCSA. Narrated by Benedict Cumberbach, Solar Superstorms debuts June 30 at the Louisiana Art & Science Museum in Baton Rouge before heading out to more than a dozen planetariums and science centers around the world.

Video: Supercomputing the Human Brain at Jülich


In this video, Prof. Dr. Dirk Pleiter from the Jülich Supercomputing Centre describes how Jülich is creating a 3D model of the human brain. “Jülich Supercomputing Centre, one of the largest research center in Germany, uses Lenovo Enterprise Systems to support research into a wide range of fields including neuroscience, fundamental physics, life sciences, climate change and energy.”

Caterpillar & NCSA Expand Collaboration for Realistic Simulations


Today Caterpillar Inc. announced it will expand its collaboration with NCSA to develop more realistic simulations that can lead to improved product designs.

GE and Cascade Optimize Gas Turbine Simulation


Today GE announced a multi-year joint development agreement with Cascade Technologies to improve combustion simulation software. With new visualaztion capabilities, engineers can virtually look inside a gas turbine as it operates and gain a better understanding of the turbulent fluid, chemical and acoustic processes occurring within advanced, low-emissions gas-turbine combustion systems.

Supercomputing the Interior Dynamics of Stars and Giant Exoplanets

Night-side view of magnetic field lines in a simulation of a "hot Jupiter" exoplanet. Simulations like these help researchers better understand the interior dynamics of these planets and learn more about how they may have formed. Magenta indicates magnetic fields with positive polarity, and blue indicates fields with negative polarity. Tamara Rogers, Jess Vriesema, University of Arizona

Over at the NASA Ames Research Center, Michelle Moyer writes that the agency is using supercomputer simulations to explore the interior dynamics of stars and giant exoplanets.
