SUG meeting illustrates wealth of OSC-supported research


More than ever, academic and manufacturing researchers from across Ohio are turning to the high performance computing power offered by the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC). On Thursday, an abundance of that research was on display at OSC’s semi-annual Statewide Users Group (SUG) meeting.

Attendees shared and gained insight into topics ranging from auto safety and dark matter to gene flow and a myriad of chemistry-related topics. They also heard two keynote addresses, and the competition portion of the meeting featured 27 posters and 12 flash talks.


Ohio Supercomputer Center launches OnDemand 3.0

Columbus, Ohio – The Ohio Supercomputer Center has launched OnDemand 3.0, a vastly upgraded version of its “one-stop shop” for access to its High Performance Computing services.

This latest version of OSC’s custom-built OnDemand web portal is the first to be based on Open OnDemand, an NSF-funded OSC project to develop an open-source web portal providing advanced web and graphical interfaces for HPC centers.

Inspired by nature

Bharat Bhushan, Ph.D., and Samuel Martin, a Ph.D. candidate and co-author on Bhushan’s recent study, have used OSC resources to research black skimmer birds and shark skin to understand drag reduction.

Bharat Bhushan, Ph.D., was on sabbatical at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland in 2005 when a transformation began.
