Exascale Earth-modeling system is ready to make high-fidelity predictions for energy

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — An Earth modeling system developed over the last four years and unveiled Monday is expected to have one of the finest resolutions ever achieved by supercomputers simulating aspects of the planet’s climate, said Sandia National Laboratories researcher Mark Taylor, the project’s chief computational scientist. The Energy Exascale Earth System Model, E3SM, is […]

Supercomputers receive funding to help predict, modify new materials

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The Department of Energy (DOE) will invest $16 million over the next four years in supercomputer technology that will accelerate the design of new materials by combining  theoretical and experimental efforts to create new validated codes. Sandia National Laboratories researcher Luke Shulenburger will head a team working to improve algorithms that predict […]

Exascale Computing Project awards $39.8 million for application development

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Improved computer climate models of the Earth’s clouds and more accurate simulations of the combustion engine are goals for two projects led by Sandia National Laboratories that were funded in the first round of activities from the Department of Energy’s Exascale Computing Project (ECP). Sandia also will conduct research with other laboratories […]

Supercomputing on the XPRESS track

Sandia aims to create exascale computing operating system ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — In the stratosphere of high-performance supercomputing, a team led by Sandia National Laboratories is designing an operating system that can handle the million trillion mathematical operations  per second of future exascale computers, and then create prototypes of several programming components. Called the XPRESS project (eXascale […]
