The Ohio Supercomputer Center has a long history of supporting industrial research, reaching back as far as the Center’s founding in 1987. Manufacturers have leveraged the Center’s computational and storage resources to design and test many products, such as electronics, fans, containers, fuel cells and wind deflectors.
Sultana Nahar, a research professor in astronomy at The Ohio State University, discovererd the lack of support for female scientists around the world after a trip to Egypt. Nahar founded the International Society of Muslim Women in Science (ISMWS) to support these scientists, and the Ohio Supercomputer Center has provided these women access to HPC resources.
The Ohio State University Molecular and Cellular Imaging Center (MCIC) is directed by Tea Meulia and serves as a shared technology laboratory to facilitate research in microscopy, genomics and bioinformatics. Meulia connected with the Ohio Supercomputer Center as she realized the volumes of data they generated and processed required additional computational power.
D2H Advanced Technologies specializes in computational fluid dynamics, which is used to model how fluids behave when they are moving through and around objects. To provide their clients, such as NASCAR, with the best models and information possible, they turned to the Ohio Supercomputer Center to support their testing.
COVID-19 quickly became a politically polarized public health crisis, and Skyler Cranmer, the Carter Phillips and Sue Henry Associate Professor of Political Science in Ohio State’s College of Arts and Sciences, wanted to see if this was apparent on Twitter. Through OSC, Cranmer and his team studied the political division around the topic based on tweets.
