Supercomputing our way to a clean energy future

Tuesday, August 21, 2012
These days of Supercomputing is not only for niche applications such as the deciphering of the mysteries of dark matter, search for the Higgs boson or help to understand us, nuclear weapons without explosive testing. With the recent advances in technology and a number of high-profile success stories, advanced computer technology, it is contagious to reduce the attention of big business on the search, their research and development costs during the production of more efficient and powerful energy technology.

Recently met at the workshop on the grand challenges of advanced computing for energy innovation in the vicinity of Washington, D.C., it specialists from the private sector, to share national laboratories and universities and best practices and discuss trends to determine the future of Supercomputing in the power industry.

Computer-assisted design took software engineers from the drawing board to the keyboard for decades, but most of which variable testing is still done with prototype models with sensors that generate much data, the analysis requires. But what is if engineers a virtual prototype to develop and test it under every imaginable condition on a system-wide basis could? With the help of national laboratories energy technology companies do just that, and new collaborative projects and programs have benefited the laboratories and businesses.

At the workshop, the air flow reported significant progress in improving truck manufacturer Navistar to its vehicles, increased fuel efficiency and durability. Instead of expensive wind tunnel, to the Navistar modeling and simulation software of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory improvements for a fraction of the research costs traditional make. For the complete story, see the energy blog.
