Cleveland Clinic team simulates cartilage response to loading
Platform Lab received and installed an important contribution from Sun Microsystems, Inc. as the lab opened its doors for operation. The contribution includes four enterprise-level Sun 220R dual processor systems, each with two gigabytes of memory, a pair of Sun Netra web application servers, and significant disk storage capacity.
These systems provide mid-range enterprise-level computing capacity and are available to users of the new facility. The estimated value of the contribution is in excess of $100,000.
The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) is looking for Ohio faculty interested in using distance learning technologies to bring computational science courses to campuses across the state.
OSC, a statewide resource for high performance technology, recently received funding from the Ohio Board of Regents to assist the state in developing computational science expertise at its public universities. OSC will fund computational science courses from various institutions that can be taught on multiple campuses.
Previous seal studies relied heavily on ‘intuition and costly experiments’
Columbus, Ohio (March 7, 2012) – An Akron researcher is designing computer prediction models to test potential new docking seals that will better preserve breathable cabin air for astronauts living aboard the International Space Station and other NASA spacecraft.
Graduate students – from various disciplines and institutions across the country – are improving their multi-core programming skills this week during a summer school course offered by the Great Lakes Consortium’s Virtual School of Computational Science and Engineering.
Both businesses and researchers increasingly are using computational science to enhance their return on investments and discovery methods. Faculty wishing to incorporate this discipline into their coursework are invited to attend the workshop, “Integrating Computational Science into the Undergraduate Curriculum,” June 17 to 23, 2007, at the Ohio Supercomputer Center, Columbus, Ohio.
Ohio’s first STEM Academy in Computational Science and Engineering is underway, providing select high school students and teachers with valuable skills in simulation and modeling.
To promote parallel computing among Ohio faculty, the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), its Statewide Users Group, and the Ohio Board of Regents are soliciting a third round of Cluster Ohio faculty research proposals. OSC will distribute Athlon AMD computer system clusters -- complete with hardware, software programming environment, and maintenance -- to this year’s Cluster Ohio awardees. Proposals are due on January 14, 2004.
