Extrusion Blow Molding Simulator

Topics: Polymer Processing, Computational Rheology, Industrial Process Simulation In our daily life polymeric based soft materials play an indispensable role, being present in a wide variety of products such as clothes, toothbrushes, car components, plastic hangers, toys, paint, etc. Due to their complex structure, their behavior induces complex, sometimes counter intuitive, phenomena, which are difficult […]

Assessing the power of Tasks with data dependencies in OMPSS to optimize particle-in-cell simulation

Despite the strong promises of the task-based paradigm, as adopted in parallel programming models such as OpenMP and OmpSs, its effective advantages are far from being well understood when applied to the non-trivial programs that comprise real-world HPC applications. In the context of the EPEEC project, a recent collaboration between INESC-ID and BSC (Barcelona Supercomputer […]

INESC-ID and Intel© have a partnership to collaborate in high-performance computation

The partnership was signed after the development of the CARM technology. INESC-ID from Instituto Superior Técnico collaborates with Intel© since researchers Aleksandar Ilic, Leonel Sousa, and Frederico Pratas developed the fundamental Cache-Aware Roofline (CARM) models, which allow taking advantage of several processor features. For example, it helps to visualize the processing limit, thus helping optimize […]

ContentMAP: Mapping The Mind, the topographical organisation of object knowledge in the brain.

Jorge AlmeidaProAction Lab http://proactionlab.fpce.uc.pt/ Faculdade de Psicologia e Ciências da Educação da Universidade de Coimbra Our ability to recognise an object amongst many others is one of the essential human mind features. Understanding how the human brain organises information about things and how that organisation allows us to quickly identify those same objects is the […]

High Velocity Water Jets: Combined Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Experimental Approaches to Characterize the Scouring Process

(Author: António Maria de Afonseca Portela Roseira Muralha, LNEC) Description/ Scientific objectives and goals: Dams over the world involve very specific features, namely in what concerns the hydraulic safety appurtenances such as the spillways. Spillways generate high velocity water flows, a particular case being water free jets strongly impacting rocky river beds downstream. The flow […]
