Bridges Supercomputer to Power Research at North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics

Today XSEDE announced it has awarded 30,000 core-hours of supercomputing time on the Bridges supercomputer to the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics (NCSSM). Funded with a $9.65M NSF grant, Bridges contains a large number of research-grade software packages for science and engineering, including codes for computational chemistry, computational biology, and computational physics, along with specialty codes such as computational fluid dynamics. “NCSSM research students often pursue interdisciplinary research projects that involve computational and/or laboratory work in chemistry, physics, and other fields,” said Jon Bennett, instructor of physics and faculty mentor for physics research. “The availability of supercomputer computational resources would greatly expand the range and depth of projects that are possible for these students.”
