Simulations help to tailor the properties of 2D materials

Be it for more efficient energy harvesting and storage or for better superconductors — Arkady Krasheninnikov’s simulations carried out with the help of PRACE resources, provide a better understanding of promising 2D materials and a basis to create new materials with tailored properties. His work has made him one of the most cited researchers in his field worldwide.

Future aircraft wings will be able to adapt their shape mid-flight

A team of scientists developed and optimised a concept for wing components that, thanks to electrically driven actuators, are able to adapt their shape as well as their vibratory behaviour during flight. This design considerably improves an aircraft’s aerodynamic performance and reduces fuel consumption. To achieve their remarkable results, the team performed extensive simulations using PRACE supercomputing resources in order to understand and control the turbulence around aircraft wings.

A better management of cerebrovascular accidents

Cerebrovascular accidents (CVA) are caused by a perturbation in the blood supply of the brain leading to a quick loss of cerebral functions, that is very often lethal. There are two categories of CVA: ischemic CVA (80% cases) resulting from the occlusion of a cerebral artery and haemorrhagic CVA (20% cases) provoked by a bleeding vessel.

New insights into using “the process that powers the stars”

Turbulence simulations, carried out in the framework of the PRACE Research Infrastructure, have provided new insights into the fundamental processes of turbulent transport. This research is contributing to the understanding and optimisation of magnetic confinement in fusion devices. Ultimately, the goal is to be able to make predictions for ITER, an international flagship fusion experiment being built in Southern France.

PRACE Annual Report 2018 – New Year, New Style

The online version of the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) Annual Report 2018 is now available. This edition includes some new elements, making for a new, more corporate style to differentiate the PRACE Annual Report from the PRACE Digest, another publication highlight each year. The paper version will be available at PRACEdays19, which will be held from 14 to16 May 2019 in Poznań, Poland, for the fourth time under the umbrella of the EuroHPC Summit Week.
