Studying cosmic strings is beneficial, for example, for predicting future cosmic events. This requires high-resolution simulations. One of the biggest problems with these simulations is their resolution and accuracy. But a team of Portuguese researchers from the University of Porto has set out to find the solution. The computational resources have already allowed them to create the largest cosmic strings simulations to date.
Portuguese researchers have created a tool that allows online access and research on documents throughout 40 years of Portuguese democracy. The scientific community – and even journalists – have already been recognizing its benefits.
High-performance computing is helping in high-resolution ocean modeling, providing completely new approaches and perspectives.
The lattice QCD research group at the University of Coimbra is performing realistic simulations using HPC to better understand the interaction and propagation of particles – quarks and gluons – that have never been observed directly.
The main challenge in producing silica-CNT composites lies in finding the optimal way to bind the silica aerogel particles to the CNTs, such as to maximize the material’s resistance and potentially enhance other properties. This is a type of problem that can be found in the realm of chemical product engineering that calls for the use of advanced molecular modeling and simulation tools, supported by high performance computing.
The footwear industry is still very dependent on trial-and-error approaches – especially in designing shoe soles – that take too much time and resources. Now, the industry is starting to use computing to optimize and innovate the process and products.
200 thousand molecules were tested using advanced computing. Researchers found two with good capacity to inhibit the virus and covered them with patents. So far, everything indicates that they are effective in combating new variants.
Manuel Melle Franco, CICECO – Aveiro Institute of Materials (University of Aveiro) We can no longer imagine life without polymers. Products made of polymers are all around us, ranging from clothing made from synthetic fibres to plastic lenses in glasses. Polymers are formed when small molecules called monomers are linked together to form long chains. […]
Paula Rodrigues – INESCTEC Project name: Developing Low and Zero Carbon Solutions using NetMIX technologies Project description: The CoLAB Net4CO2 is focused on the development of different solutions for low and zero-carbon energy systems, helping different industries to reach carbon neutrality by 2050 and meet the targets defined in the Paris agreement. Three main strategic […]
@MoreiraLAB www.moreiralab.com Our project, VIRUSHOSTAI – DSAIPA/DS/0118/2020, is a good example of the advantage of using High Performance Computing as it involves dynamic simulations of proteins as well the most recent algorithms of deep-learning. We are following a network-based approach to predict new links between virus and their hosts, essential towards the establishment of a […]
