Using TACC Supercomputers to Design Safer Offshore Oil Platforms


Researchers are using TACC supercomputers to design next-generation of offshore floating platforms. “Technip has one of the largest computer clusters among engineering companies, but the simulations would take weeks to complete, said Jang Kim, Chief Technical Advisor at Technip. “Stampede has allowed us to run simulations in one day or even overnight. We are then able to get these safer designs out into use faster.”
