RESEARCH HIGHLIGHTS

Our research highlights serve as a collection of feature articles detailing recent scientific achievements on GCS HPC resources. 

Scientists at the University of Bonn use the JUWELS supercomputer at the Jülich Supercomputing Center to improve models of how ocean tides are changing in a warming climate.

As artificial intelligence enters new corners of society, academic researchers are hard at work making sure that the applications interacting with our day-to-day routines are ready for whatever life throws at them. A team at the University of Wuppertal uses supercomputing resources at the Jülich Supercomputing Centre to make AI training more efficient, improving problem-solving capabilities for autonomous driving and other complex systems in the process.

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self Organization are using artificial intelligence methods on the Jülich Supercomputing Centre’s flagship JUWELS system to better understand turbulent fluid flows in unprecedented detail.

Separating and filtering complex mixtures is essential for many industrial and medical applications. In fact, industrial separation processes of chemicals account for roughly 10 percent of the world’s energy consumption. Researchers at the University of Göttingen, Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon, and University of Hamburg are using a combination of simulation and experiments to deepen our understanding of how to make these essential processes more efficient. 

German-Research-Foundation-funded initiative supports research to better understand the movements of microorganisms in an effort to develop new environmental remediation efforts and drug delivery devices, among other applications. 

Scientists have long used supercomputers to better understand how turbulent flows behave under a variety of conditions. Recognizing a need to include the complex but essential concept of “intermittency” in turbulent flows, researchers at CORIA and RWTH Aachen University used Jülich Supercomputing Centre’s infrastructure to run highly detailed simulations.

From touch screens and advanced electronic sensors to better drug delivery devices, graphene has become one of the most promising new materials in recent decades. In an effort to produce cheap, defect-free graphene in larger quantities, researchers from the Technical University of Munich have been using GCS HPC resources to develop more efficient methods for producing graphene at the industrial scale.

Physicists have spent 20 years trying to more precisely measure the so-called “magnetic moment” of subatomic particles called muons. Findings published this week call into question long-standing assumptions of particle physics.

High-performance computing provides essential tools for drug discovery and epidemiological modeling in the fight against the global pandemic.

High-performance computing helps scientists at Heinrich Heine Universität Düsseldorf and Forschungszentrum Jülich better understand enzymes that are more resistant to detergents and solvents.
