Press Releases

Molecular dynamics simulations at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) are helping scientists get closer to directly observing how and why water is essential to life as we know it. 

Sixteen Ohio high school students are spending two weeks of their summer break investigating complex science and engineering problems, while discovering career opportunities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.

In February, NASA announced it would move forward with its Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST) mission, which will study a broad set of scientific investigations. For the past five years, researchers from Ohio State, whose own research has been buoyed by the Ohio Supercomputer Center, have been on NASA’s Science Definition Team for the preliminary study of WFIRST, set to launch in the mid-2020s. Find out how OSC is supporting this historic research and what it could mean for the future of space exploration. 

Jesse Owens at 1936 Olympics

Having set collegiate athletics afire a year earlier with four world records set or tied in a single day, Jesse Owens sprinted to four gold medals and two Olympic records at the 1936 Berlin Games and refuted the Nazi notion of Aryan racial superiority.

The Ohio Supercomputer Center has been selected as an  Intel® Parallel Computing Center. As part of the the Intel® PCC program, the OSC research team will work toward modernizing a computer software package that leverages large-scale, 3-D modeling to research fatigue and fracture analyses, primarily in metals. 

Washington, D.C. (Feb. 18, 2016) – The AweSim program at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) and EWI have been selected to develop one of 10 national industry projects under the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) High Performance Computing for Manufacturing (HPC4Mfg) program.

Every significant breakthrough – from a baby’s curiosity to a scientist etching his or her name in the history books – begins with one question, one syllable, one word: Why?

Leaders from the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) met with five senior members of the Beijing Computing Center (BCC) and Comet Solutions, Inc. at the Ohio Technology Consortium facility Wednesday afternoon to discuss challenges, share history and look to the future of app development at a high-performance computing organization.

In a very significant way, Rodney Richardson has found a key that is unlocking some powerful insight into how we can help sustain the lives of our planet’s pollinators.

In 2014, the Ohio State University graduate student adapted his previous experience using Ohio Supercomputer Center resources for bioinformatics studies to his current research on honey bee foraging and the result could throw open the doors for this particular area of study.

Attendees at the semi-annual Statewide Users Group were immersed in a melting pot of eye-opening scientific research projects Thursday at the Ohio Supercomputer Center.

Research on topics such as virtual welding simulation, evolutionary modeling and water absorption – just to name a few – were on full display during the Flash Talk and Poster competitions of the SUG meeting.
