Manufacturing Simulation? There's an App for that!

Ohio’s Third Frontier Commission is funding an effort to boost Ohio businesses through modeling and simulation. With a $3 million grant to the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), project partners will design and deploy easy-to-use advanced “manufacturing apps” through the group’s Intelligent Simulation Platform program. Many large manufacturers have embraced simulation-driven design to achieve a degree […]

Renowned HPC System Architect Alan Gara Talks About Exascale Pathfinding

“It seems that, in order to understand the Application Challenges of the next 7-10 years, we need to have a handle on what the new technologies might be that developers will have to work with. Yet it seems like almost every aspect – every echnical details – related to the technologies of the future, particularly with exascale are up in the air right now. Have you determined some approaches that application developers could actually be using today to insure they have code that will be scalable on exaflops machines?”
