Supercomputers take science by storm
Date:7/28/2010

e to rapidly design changes in magnet configuration needed for the upgrade that do not impact existing operating modes of the APS.

  • Benoit Roux, a senior computational biologist at Argonne and senior fellow of the Computation Institute, was awarded over 28 million hours to develop new computational approaches for studying complex biological macromolecular systems. His research will entail cutting-edge modeling to simulate the activation of membrane-associated proteins that function as molecular switches, advancing our understanding of the structure, dynamics and function of biological systems.

  • Larry Curtiss of Argonne's Center for Nanoscale Materials was awarded 20 million hours for the design and discovery of new materials critical to our energy future. His team will focus on electrical energy storage and catalytic materials leading to safer, more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly battery technologies for long-range electric vehicles and efficient conversion of biomass to light fuels.

    Other projects awarded by the ALCC to run at Argonne's ALCF include the following:

    • Researchers from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will run ultra-high-resolution global climate simulations tracking selected hurricanes.

    • Scientists from GE will simulate advanced aircraft propulsion technologies, to improve fuel efficiency and reduce noise.

    • Stanford University scientists will collaborate with Argonne scientists to enable very-large-scale turbulence simulations.

    • Researchers from MIT will perform an unprecedentedly realistic calculation of nucleon structure using full lattice quantum chromodynamics.

    Open to researchers from national laboratories, academia and industry, the ALCC program allocates up to 30 percent of DOE's computational resources at the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) and the Leadership Computing Fac
