Announcements The 9th UK Heat Transfer Conference, overseen by the UK National Committee for Heat Transfer, will take place in Manchester on 5-6th September 2005.

Papers are welcome on all aspects of heat transfer and related mass transfer, including applications such as bio-systems, gas turbines and i.c. engines, materials processing, micro-systems, power and process engineering.

Following on from the success of the 2003 UKHT conference in Oxford, we hope the conference will be an informal and lively occasion and particularly wish to encourage attendance by graduate students and others at early stages in their careers in heat transfer.

Hardware Global supercomputer leader Cray Inc. today announced that Software Cradle Co. Ltd., a prominent Japanese computational fluid dynamics (CFD) application developer, has chosen the Cray XD1 supercomputer as the company’s platform for software development and consulting. Software Cradle’s Cray XD1 installation consists of six chassis and 72 AMD Opteron processors. The firm selected the Cray XD1 supercomputer after a test system achieved excellent competitive benchmark results when running Software Cradle’s SC/Tetra software.

For example, in a benchmark test designed to measure turnaround time, a 16-processor Cray XD1 system running SC/Tetra completed a complex problem two times faster than a similarly configured 3.6-GHz Xenon cluster. When more processors were added to assess the systems’ scalability, Cray XD1 performance held steady at up to 64 processors, while the performance of the Xenon cluster dropped off rapidly.
