TACC Ranger explores the physics of flow

Professor P.K. Yeung of the Georgia Institute of Technology’s School of Aerospace Engineering is using the TACC Ranger system to tackle the daunting physics of turbulence:
“Together with his research partners, Yeung recently began using Ranger, the world’s largest supercomputer for open-science research, at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) to resolve a turbulence grid of 68 billion (40963) grid points. The simulations will use up to 16,384 processor cores per simulation (or 131 trillion floating point operations per second), and this number will increase to 32,768 cores in the future (262 teraflops).” Full Story.


About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
