New model helps pave the way to bringing clean fusion energy down to Earth

Turbulence — the unruly swirling of fluid and air that mixes coffee and cream and can rattle airplanes in flight — causes heat loss that weakens efforts to reproduce on Earth the fusion that powers the sun and stars. Now scientists have modeled a key source of the turbulence found in a fusion experiment at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL), paving the way for improving similar experiments to capture and control fusion energy. The research used computer resources at the MGHPCC. Continue reading New model helps pave the way to bringing clean fusion energy down to Earth

MGHPCC @ Supercomputing19

This year, SC19, the International Conference for High-Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis,  was held at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, November 17 – 22.  MGHPCC representation included the Boston University Research Computing booth which spotlighted several of the compute-intensive projects it has housed at the Center while Northeast Cyberteam project lead Julie Ma led a Birds of a Feather session providing an update on Ask.CI, the Q&A Platform for Research Computing.
