The advances in high-performance computing open unprecedented opportunities for engineers. This includes, among other things, running high fidelity simulations of very large and complex systems, analyzing concurrently a plethora of different design variants, and inferring knowledge from petabytes of data. This comes at a price, however. The software systems become very complex and its diversity is often confusing for the end-users – engineers. In this presentation, I will provide a glimpse into different HPC technologies illustrated with example engineering applications.
Dr. Tomasz Haupt received his Ph.D. in experimental High-Energy Physics from the Institute of Nuclear Physics in Krakow (Poland) in 1985. In 1992, while at Syracuse University, he converted to Computer Science with a focus in High-Performance-, Distributed-, and Web-based computing. Now at Mississippi State University, he continues to assist experts from many domains (such as computational physics, chemistry, climate and weather, material science, electrical and mechanical engineering, and others) in developing scientific and engineering applications in distributed high-performance environments.
