Grasping the concept of climate change and its impact on the environment can be difficult. Establishing common ground and using models, however, can break down barriers and present the concept in an easily understood manner. In a presentation at this year's meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Michigan State University systems ecologist and modeler Laura Schmitt-Olabisi shows how system dynamics models effectively communicate the challenges and implications...

Simulations Study Helping With Earthquake Dampers For Structures
2013-07-31 08:47:43

Purdue University Researchers have demonstrated the reliability and efficiency of "real-time hybrid simulation" for testing a type of powerful damping system that might be installed in buildings and bridges to reduce structural damage and injuries during earthquakes. The magnetorheological-fluid dampers are shock-absorbing devices containing a liquid that becomes far more viscous when a magnetic field is applied. "It normally feels like a thick fluid, but when you apply a magnetic...

Data-driven technique created by Carnegie Mellon and Berkeley researchers will improve real-time animation of complex phenomena It would be impossible to compute all of the ways a piece of cloth might shift, fold and drape over a moving human figure. But after six months of computation, researchers at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of California, Berkeley, are pretty sure they've simulated almost every important configuration of that cloth. "I believe our approach...

Leveraging over 9 million of dollars of investment in military simulation and training, Engineering & Computer Simulations (ECS) unveils a new robust training capability called the Crisis Response Simulation, to the Oil and Gas Industry at the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, TX, May 6-9. The simulation system can be rapidly configured, and provides immersive, intense scenario training, rehearsal and real-time feedback, resulting in effective crisis response training which...

Simulating Climate Change Using New Technique
2013-03-05 13:13:13

Brown University Statistical physics offers an approach to studying climate change that could dramatically reduce the time and brute-force computing that current simulation techniques require. The new approach focuses on fundamental forces that drive climate rather than on “following every little swirl” of water or air. And yes, there´s an app for that. Scientists are using ever more complex models running on ever more powerful computers to simulate the earth´s...

Sequoia Passes One Million Cores

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The most advanced gaming PCs rely on quad-core processors, but that pales to what researchers at Stanford's Engineering Center for Turbulence Research (CTR) have created with a new record in computational science. The Stanford researchers successfully used a supercomputer with more than one million computing cores to solve a complex fluid dynamics problem; that being the prediction of noise generated by a supersonic jet engine....
