Supercomputer and tumour cells
Read how researchers from Brown University, ETH Zurich, and the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre use supercomputing to simulate hundreds of millions of red blood cells in an attempt to develop better drug delivery methods and predictors to fight against tumour formation and sickle cell anaemia: https://goo.gl/FJnEAi
In this very-detailed article Bruce Jenkins, president of Ora Research, wrote about the benefits of optimization technology offers when used early in product development and its misconception
ESI now in the cloud
After opening a new datacenter at the Teratec Campus in France at the end of 2015, the next step for ESI was to bring their services to the cloud. Find out what services users will be able to have access to: http://goo.gl/IiJOz7
CAE - from niche tech to mainstream staple
Scientific Computing World
Scientific Computing World talks with Altair about the evolution of computer-aided engineering and how the needs shaped the use of the technology: http://goo.gl/8rwFLx
Simulation and Modelling for Life Sciences/Health Sector:
If you live in Scotland, you may want to attend the free event on Exploring the State-of-the-Art inSimulation and Modelling for Life Sciences/Health Sector. This particular workshop also aims to explore modelling and simulation techniques, potential translation of techniques between sectors with an emphasis on the life sciences/health, however we are also interested in looking at the underpinning technologies and techniques and resource requirements. http://goo.gl/dMMbBk
Simulation for sustainable flying
Last year the Solar Impulse HB-SIA , a solar-powered airplane, was able to fly for 26 hours nonstop only using energy it generated from the sun during its journey around the world. Discover how they used simulation to create this amazing solar-powered plane.
CFD Simulation to help preserve our food resources
In this article you will find out the dynamics of entire vertical farming system that is developed in order to produce the world's food necessary to feed the estimated 9 billion people on Earth by 2050. Read how and why simulation had to be used: http://goo.gl/ryqT8R
University of Akron receives $1million in grant
David Simmons, associate professor of polymer engineering, and collaborators Kevin Cavicchi and Alamgir Karim will spend the next three years investigating glasses — non crystalline, solid materials that are mysterious to researchers in many ways. Read what was the role of simulation in his research: http://goo.gl/Q4MPqX
