NASA to Present Supercomputing Projects at Utah HPC Conference

Computer-EngineeringNASA will highlight results of various agency research and supercomputing projects at SC16, an international high-performance computing conference scheduled to take place in Salt Lake City, Utah from Nov. 14 to 17.

Professionals from five NASA centers will present 40 mission projects that use the space agency’s HPC resources such as complex aerodynamic simulations of helicopter rotor blade-tip vortices, shifting ozone patterns simulations and modeling and simulation systems, NASA said Thursday.

The agency also plans to exhibit three-dimensional models and visualizations during the event to provide insights into the sun’s magnetic field cycle and other solar incidents.

“NASA supercomputers are critical to helping scientists around the world gain new knowledge and understanding of our complex world and the universe,” said Piyush Mehrotra, chief of the advanced supercomputing division at the Ames Research Center in California.

NASA also updated its Pleiades supercomputer to increase the system’s power to 246,048 cores and performance to 7.25 petaflops in efforts to address modeling and simulation requirements of the agency’s aeronautics, exploration and science programs.
