The Multiphysics 4.4 from COMSOL Inc. is the latest version of the company’s powerful platform for the modeling and simulation of electrical, mechanical, fluid and chemical applications.
Scientists have, for the first time, demonstrated that climate models are able to simulate past abrupt changes in the Earth’s climate– giving more confidence in predictions of future global climate change.
Amazon.com is working on a way to get packages to customers in 30 minutes or less - via self-guided drone. Consider it the modern version of a pizza delivery boy, minus the boy.
How far away is spiral galaxy NGC 4921? Although presently estimated to be about 310 million light years distant, a more precise determination could be coupled with its known recession speed to help humanity better calibrate the expansion rate of the entire visible universe.
Researchers at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) are involved in the design of a robotic arm for precise guidance of the insertion of needles, catheters and surgical instruments in procedures of minimally invasive surgery.
A team of researchers from the IMP Vienna together with collaborators from the Vienna University of Technology established a new microscopy technique which greatly enhances resolution in the third dimension.
They are the coldest objects in the Universe and are so fragile that even a single photon can heat and destroy them. Known as Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs) and consisting of just a cluster of atoms, it has up until now been impossible to measure and control these remarkable forms of matter simultaneously.
The 4U two-node FatTwin platform features two ultra-high-performance compute nodes, each supporting dual Intel XeonE5-2600 v2 “Ivy Bridge” processors (up to 130W TDP) and up to six Intel Many Integrated Core (MIC) based Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessors.
The Tundra Open HPC clustered architecture can support up to 108 high performance compute servers in a single rack with improved serviceability and investment protection. It is based on the Open Compute Project’s Open Rack form factor that re-engineers the conventional data center rack for maximum power efficiency
nCore HPC, a global provider of high performance, low latency HPC systems, services and solutions, announced that Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) has become the first customer of nCore’s BrownDwarf Y-class supercomputer. BrownDwarf is a heterogeneous ARM- + DSP-based system that delivers supercomputer-class performance at significantly reduced power levels.
Engineering students around the world have until February 14, 2014, to take part in the global Valeo Innovation Challenge. The goal of the Valeo Innovation Challenge is to design equipment that, between now and 2030, will make cars more intelligent and intuitive. Students taking part in the challenge must develop bold, revolutionary solutions for the cars of 2030.
High-resolution global atmospheric modeling provides a unique tool to study the role of weather within Earth’s climate system. NASA’s Goddard Earth Observing System Model (GEOS-5) is capable of simulating worldwide weather at resolutions as fine as 3.5 kilometers.
A force that intricately links the rotation of the Earth with the direction of weather patterns in the atmosphere has been shown to play a crucial role in the creation of the hypnotic patterns created by the skirts of the Whirling Dervishes.
A $500 "nano-camera" that can operate at the speed of light has been developed by researchers in the MIT Media Lab. The three-dimensional camera, which was presented at Siggraph Asia in Hong Kong, could be used in medical imaging and collision-avoidance detectors for cars, and to improve the accuracy of motion tracking and gesture-recognition devices used in interactive gaming.
JARVICE HPC Cloud Platform is designed for heterogeneous hardware computing environments. The platform enables users and developers to benefit from high performance cloud hardware to create Nimbix Application Environments (NAEs) for high throughput batch processing.
