  • NCI supercomputer boosts ARC research capacity in more ways than one

    NCI supercomputer boosts ARC research capacity in more ways than one

    The National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) hosted at The Australian National University (ANU) is the nation’s most highly integrated and highest performing supercomputing centre. It supports a vast amount of the computational data-intensive research undertaken in Australia.With funding support from the Australian Research Council (ARC), National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Scheme (NCRIS), and a variety of partner organisations, there may be no other single piece of infrastructure that serves such a wide variety of research at Australia’s universities, Government science agencies and ...

    Understanding how bushfires spread

    Bushfires can cause devastating environmental and societal problems in Australia and other fire-prone parts of the world.NCI’s supercomputer facilities are enabling A/Prof Jason Sharples, expert in bushfire dynamics simulation and modelling from UNSW, and his team to use computer modelling to investigate, for the first time in the world, the dynamic fire spread caused by wind–terrain–fire interactions. Sharples said a better understanding of the physical mechanisms that cause fire spread will lead to many environmental benefits for Australia and a decrease ... Read More

    Raijin helps researchers win award at an international HPC conference

    A team of researchers from The Australian National University (ANU) have used the NCI facilities to conduct ground-breaking research that has won an award for outstanding paper at an international conference. The award from the 2015 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2015) in Amsterdam  recognised the significance, scientific quality, timeliness and relevance of the team's work which allows ultra-large scale applications to run and finish successfully despite failure characteristics. Lead researcher and PhD Candidate at ANU, Md. Mohsin ... Read More
