Hartree Centre HPC Summer School in Engineering Simulation
Ideal for engineers wanting to learn about HPC in the context of engineering simulation
Date: Monday 27 June to Friday 1 July
Cost: £150 for the week (not including accommodation)
Organiser: Dr Lee Margetts, University of Manchester - firstname.lastname@example.org
The Hartree Centre in Warrington (STFC Daresbury Laboratory) is running a series of popular HPC Summer Schools aimed at PhD students, postdocs and industrial practitioners. The engineering week is led by Dr Lee Margetts ( University of Manchester) and focuses on high performance computing for solid mechanics. The school covers a different theme each day:
- Open source software for parallel finite element analysis;
- Dealing with uncertainty using stochastic methods;
- Image- based mesh generation using X-ray tomography data;
- Multiscale modelling, coupling cellular automata to finite elements and
- Emerging technologies for simulation.
Each theme presents the relevant theory, a real engineering case study and provides hands-on tuition using advanced open source and proprietary simulation tools (including ParaFEM, ParaView and Simpleware). There's also the opportunity to talk to experts about topics of your own interest during timetabled coffee breaks, lunch time and the school dinner.
As well as the engineering school, the Hartree Centre is also running 1 week Summer Schools on HPC, Big Data and Visualisation. For further information, please click on the following link: hartree.stfc.ac.uk/SS16. If you'd like to attend, please register soon as places are limited!
