ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Sandia National Laboratories’ computational scientist and applied mathematician Ray Tuminaro has been named a 2022 Fellow of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics for “contributions in iterative linear-solver algorithms and software that address scientific computing applications on large-scale parallel systems.” A member of Sandia’s technical staff, Sandia said Tuminaro has been praised for “exceptional […]

Truman and Hruby 2022 Fellows at Sandia Explore Their Possibilities

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Postdoctoral researchers who are designated Truman and Hruby fellows experience Sandia National Laboratories differently from their peers. Appointees to the prestigious fellowships are given the latitude to pursue their own ideas, rather than being trained by fitting into the research plans of more experienced researchers. To give wings to this process, the […]

Sandia: Algorithm Could Shorten Quality Testing, Research in Industries by Months

ALBUQUERQUE, February 15, 2022 — A machine-learning algorithm developed at Sandia National Laboratories could provide auto manufacturing, aerospace and other industries a faster and more cost-efficient way to test bulk materials, Sandia announced today. The technique was published recently in the scientific journal Materials Science and Engineering: A. Production stoppages are costly. So manufacturers screen […]

Sandia ML Model Shows Diamond Melting at High Pressure

ALBUQUERQUE, Jan. 26, 2022 — A Sandia National Laboratories supercomputer simulation model called SNAP that rapidly predicts the behavior of billions of interacting atoms has captured the melting of diamond when compressed by extreme pressures and temperatures. At several million atmospheres, the rigid carbon lattice of the hardest known substance on Earth is shown in SNAP […]
