LBNL’s David McCallen is Featured on insideHPC

Rich Brueckner of insideHPC talked with researcher David McCallen of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the Exascale Computing Project recently at the HPC User Forum in Tucson about how exascale computing will enhance earthquake simulation for improved structural safety.

Getting Ready to Model Molecular Properties at Exascale with NWChemEx

Many of the phenomena in our daily lives are controlled by molecular processes. An example is the performance of automobile engines. Software called NWChem, or Northwest Chem, can tell researchers a lot about fuel combustion and many other molecular systems. Here about NWChemEx for exascale on Let's Talk Exascale.

New Exascale System for Earth Simulation

A new earth modeling system unveiled today will have weather-scale resolution and use advanced computers to simulate aspects of Earth’s variability and anticipate decadal changes that will critically impact the U.S. energy sector in coming years.
