Here are some highlights from projects being run on Eagle.
- Parallelization of All Orders Spectral Algorithm (AORSA) code (July 2000)
- Researcher: E.F. Jaeger, Ed D'Azevedo
By spreading the dense matrix over 576 processors on the ORNL IBM RS/6000 SP super computer, we are able to solve up to 120,000 coupled complex equations requiring 230 GBytes of memory and achieving over 500 Gflops/sec.
- Species Distribution Prediction SEED proposal (June 2000)
- Researcher: Forrest Hoffman
ORNL Seed Money Fund project to use the results for two tree species in a proposal to OBER to make species distribution predictions under scenarios of global environmental change, and to determine ecoregionalizations using higher dimensionality than has ever been done before. By using 32 nodes on Eagle, researchers were able to run in under 10 days a simulation that would have taken over 10 months on a serial system.
- Computational Catalysis: What Does Hydrogen do in CcO2?
- EERE sponsored computational investigations of catalytic materials (specifically ceria) using first-principles. Parallelization and fast processors on Eagle quicken a key calculation from 38.9 days (projected on a local workstation) to just 5 hours 45 minutes.
- Simulation of Flow through the SNS Liquid Mercury Target (February 2000)
- The Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) is a high-power accelerator-based pulsed spallation source being designed by a multi laboratory team led by Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) to achieve high fluxes of neutrons for scientific experiments.
- Terrestrial Carbon Cycle Modeling (January 2000)
- DOE OBER sponsored project to develop methodologies to evaluate the significance of terrestrial carbon processes in the past and future evolution of the global carbon cycle, and for carbon sequestration analysis.
- Performance Tuning and Evaluation using the CCM atmospheric model (ongoing)
- DOE/OBER sponsored studies to determine performance and parallel scalability achievable by the spectral global atmospheric circulation models used in climate modeling.
- Early climate results (June 1999).
