The essence of High Performance Computing (HPC) lies in sharing the large-scale hardware resources among the software applications using them. Efficient application allocation on the available compute resources is a key aspect of any HPC infrastructure functionality.
The goals of the project are the efficient simulation of complex fluid flow, extended the code FLEXI to general complex equations of state for technical gases and multiphase mixtures, the direct visualization of high-order DG solutions, the industrialization of the CFD code FLEXI and the reliable and efficient application to industrial problems.
The acronym "IB-ISEB" stands for "Intelligent Bridges - Information systems for Structural monitoring and preservation management of bridges" ("Intelligente Brücken - Informationssystem zum Strukturmonitoring und Erhaltungsmanagement von Brücken"), aiming at the provisioning of a framework to constantly monitor bridges and allow better preservation strategies.
JUNIPER (Java platform for hIgh PErformance and Real-time large scale data management) is an EU FP7-ICT project, started in December 2012, aiming to establish a development platform for new-generation data demanding applications.
Cloud computing is revolutionising the IT industry through its support for utility service-oriented Internet computing without the need for large capital outlays in hardware to deploy their services or the human expense to operate.
POLCA explicitly addresses the programmability concerns of both embedded and high performance computing. Both domains have generated strongly focused approaches for solving their specific problems that are now confronted with the increasing need for parallelism even in Embedded Systems and the need for addressing non-functional criteria in High Performance Computing.
Molecular dynamics (MD) and Monte-Carlo (MC) simulations form the basis for investigating many relevant application scenarios in science and engineering. At the heart of these simulations lie physically meaningful and quantitative models of molecular interactions, requiring precise validation through state of the art ab initio calculations and experimental data.
