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.
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.
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.”
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.
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.”
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.
