A research team from Princeton University is using high-performance computing resources from NICS to investigate the explosive mechanism within core-collapse supernovae.
The Darter supercomputer last year assisted the Consortium for Advanced Simulation of Light Water Reactors (CASL) in meeting a crucial milestone, simulation of the Watts Bar nuclear reactor.
NICS is contributing expertise and high-performance computing resources to a new program from the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) aimed at promoting multidisciplinary collaborations between the scientific and industrial communities.
Papers and tutorial proposals for the XSEDE14 conference, July 13–18, at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis, are due March 15. Early registration for the conference and hotel booking availability begins on April 14.
Using the Kraken supercomputer, researchers are studying the energy transfers in rotating, layered fluid flows in the atmosphere to better understand weather and climate systems.
