In certain heart diseases, the left ventricle does not contract simultaneously. Usually, a pacemaker can come to the rescue here. Why this does not help in thirty per cent of cases, however, is difficult to ascertain. Simulations on the CSCS Monte Rosa supercomputer of the physiology of the heart should now help provide a detailed […]
Jean Favre (CSCS) presents at SC12 a video created together with Martin Schmitt and Christos E. Frouzakis ETH Zurich of direct numerical simulation of flow in engine-like geometries. Internal combustion engine flows are turbulent, unsteady and exhibit high cycle-to-cycle variations. There are multiple turbulence generating mechanisms and their effects overlap in time and space, creating […]
Andreas Born from the Climate and Environmental Physics group at University of Bern presented at CSCS User Day a poster portraying the work that the entire group has been doing at CSCS. He stresses how the storage requirement increases linearly with the cpu hours and how to answer scientific questions they cannot separate on from […]
Dear HPC enthusiasts, Bellatrix is the new EPFL computing cluster managed by DIT. To mark the imminent production start of this new machine, a joint Dell-Intel-EPFL event will take place on Thursday, December 6th High Performance Computing: benefits and critical aspects Power provisioning and energy consumption become major challenges in the field of high performance […]
During CSCS User Day, PhD student David Daverio in the Geneva cosmology group of Martin Kunz at University of Geneva presented his work on “Cosmic strings simulation”. David also gave a very interesting talk on his work attempting to clarify to the audience what are cosmic strings and how to simulate them on Monte Rosa.
