Highlight Applications


Combustion: S3D uses chemical model to simulate combustion process in order to understand the ignition characteristic of bio-fuels for automotive usage. Publication: SC 2012.



Fusion: EPSi simulation workflow provides insight into edge plasma physics in magnetic fusion devices by simulating movement of millions particles. Publication: CCGrid 2010


Subsurface modeling: IPARS uses multi-physics, multi-model formulations and coupled multi-block grids to support oil reservoir simulation of realistic, high-resolution reservoir studies with a million or more grids. Publication: CCGrid 2011


Computational mechanics: FEM coupled with AMR is often used to solve heat transfer or fluid dynamic problems. AMR only performs refinements on important region of the mesh. (work in progress)


Material Science: SNS workflow enables integration of data, analysis, and modeling tools for materials science experiments to accelerate scientific discoveries which requires beam lines data query capability. (work in progress)

Material Science: QMCPack utilizes quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) studies in heterogeneous catalysis of transition metal nanoparticles, phase transitions, properties of materials under pressure, and strongly correlated materials. (work in progress)
