White Paper: Improving Aerospace Engine Simulation

Among the critical simulations aerospace manufacturers must run is fan blade off, which simulates the failure of a fan or compressor blade in a jet engine at high rotating speeds. This free white paper details the use of LS-DYNA, a finite element program made by LTSC, on a Cray® XC40™ supercomputer to simulate fan blade off containment.

Researchers’ Novel Model Captures a Splitting Nucleus

What is taking place at the microscopic level of an atom during fission? It’s a question that has lingered for nearly a century. A team led by Aurel Bulgac of the University of Washington are leveraging the accelerated architecture of the “Titan” supercomputer at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, which has shown promise for capturing real-time dynamics of nuclear evolution without imposing the constraints that other models require.
