Is there a better way to design production systems that will adapt to the aerodynamics of a peanut during roasting? Or to the size of a baby during diaper design? Or to the likelihood of a detergent bottle being dropped? For the person given these challenges, the answer for each is “yes,” and the means is “powerful computers.”
Phonons—the elemental particles that transmit both heat and sound—have magnetic properties, according to a landmark study supported by Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) services and recently published by a researcher group from The Ohio State University.
Researchers who normally use high-resolution satellite imagery to study glaciers are using their technology this week to help with disaster relief and longer-term stabilization planning efforts related to the recent earthquake in Nepal.
Ohio Board of Regents Chancellor John Carey and other dignitaries visited Ohio State’s west campus today to help unveil the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s newest supercomputer platform – the HP/Intel Xeon Phi Ruby Cluster.
In pursuit of a graduate degree next year in the United Kingdom, an Ohio State Honors student will leverage what he’s learned about using specialized processors at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) to study cutting-edge mathematical methods for analyzing large datasets.
Research projects featuring a wide range of scientific interests, such as ultra-intense lasers, pesticides and polymers, were featured at the first-ever poster session and flash talk competition at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) Dec. 4.
Researchers at The Ohio State University were recognized today at the SC14 conference for the supercomputer industry for studies that leverage high performance computers to help unlock the origins of cancer development.
State-of-the-art supercomputers, sophisticated software and high-speed research networks will be on tap as Central Ohio technology experts travel this weekend to New Orleans for SC14 (sc14.supercomputing.org), the international conference for high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis.
The U.S. Department of Energy recently awarded Engineering Mechanics Corporation of Columbus (Emc2) and its partners $1 million to develop a cloud-based tool that will simulate welding processes employed in the manufacture of metallic products. The funding gives added momentum to AweSim, a public-private, Ohio-based initiative to boost industrial use of modeling and simulation.
A recent study into the biomechanics of the necks of ants – a common insect that can amazingly lift objects many times heavier than its own body – might unlock one of nature’s little mysteries and, quite possibly, open the door to advancements in robotic engineering.
