Six research groups awarded new GLCPC allocations on Blue Waters supercomputer


11 Feb 2019 Urbana-Champaign - Six research groups have been awarded new allocations by the Great Lakes Consortium for Petascale Computation (GLCPC) on the Blue Waters supercomputer, located at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Through a stringent peer-reviewed process, allocations total two million node hours - equivalent to 64 million core hours - of computation time and will run through December 19, 2019. Ranging from research investigations regarding Hepatitis B to Space Weather Modelling, these diverse projects will help provide researchers insight into complex problems in multiple scientific areas.

The GLCPC provides the opportunity for researchers affiliated with its member institutions, which include universities, colleges, educational foundations, national laboratories and more, to utilize the power of petascale computing on Blue Waters to further their scientific efforts.

GLCPC allocation awards went to the following Principal Investigators:

  • Gabor Toth, University of Michigan: Multilevel Parallelization of the Space Weather Modeling Framework
  • Mahmoud Moradi, University of Arkansas: Thermodynamic Characterization of Large-Conductance Mechanosensitive Channel Activation
  • Jodi Hadden, University of Delaware: Furthering Characterization of the Hepatitis B Virus Capsid as a Drug Target: Simulations to Investigate Quasi-Equivalence and Cooperativity in Drug Binding
  • Eric Johnsen, University of Michigan: Inertial Collapse of Individual Bubbles near Solid/Free Boundaries
  • Venkat Raman, University of Michigan: GPU-Enhanced Highly Scalable Simulation of Rotating Detonation Engines
  • Fatemah Khalili-Araghi, University of Illinois at Chicago: Architecture of Tight Junctions and the Paracellular Transport Mechanism
More details about these projects can be found at the Blue Waters website.
