Preparing for Exascale: Aurora Software Development – Packaging and Early Hardware

By coordinating efforts to improve early exascale hardware stability at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF), computer scientist Servesh Muralidharan is working to make it easier for application developers to use Aurora testbeds at Argonne’s Joint Laboratory for System Evaluation (JLSE). His work will facilitate a faster transition to the Aurora system upon its delivery and help […]

Argonne Claims 1st Full-core Pin-resolved Nuclear Reactor Model

Understanding the physical behavior inside an operating nuclear reactor can be done only with simulations on a supercomputer due to the high-pressure, high-temperature, and radioactive environment inside a reactor core. The whirls and eddies of coolant that flow around the fuel pins play a critical role in determining the reactor thermal and hydraulics performance and […]
