News Desktop Engineering has posted and informative article about the past, present, and future of high performance computing and its effect on analysis.
No matter whether you use a traditional supercomputer, a cluster, or a grid, high-performance computing is essential to sophisticated analytics in science, engineering, and business. As data set sizes grow exponentially, high processing power is required to manage the complexity of the data by processing large and complex data sets simultaneously and quickly. That way, uncovered information remains useful for timely decision-making.

CD-adapco CD-adapco is proud to launch the “Faces of the Future”, Student Paper Contest. We are looking to reward the best and brightest in the academic community who are harnessing the power of CD-adapco’s software. Some of the most groundbreaking developments we’ve made in our code’s capabilities have come from innovative ideas cultivated at North America’s universities. This is a unique opportunity for you to showcase the advancements you’ve made with our software to not only the CFD community, but to the engineering industry as a whole!

Here’s how the contest will work. Over the coming months, our staff will examine all submissions and determine which papers are most original and technically sound. Based on that determination, 6 student authors will be invited to present their papers at our annual STAR Conference, which is to take place in the spring of 2006.

Application: CFD Helps Solve the Heat and Power Problems Raised By Blade Servers
Posted Tue August 30, 2005 @11:08AM

Application As blade servers, a housing for a number of individual minimally-packaged computer motherboard "blades", become more powerful and businesses pack more and more of them into data centers, cooling the thin devices is becoming more of a challenge. A rack of blade servers can generate as much as 14 kilowatts, nearly the heat given off by two electric ovens.

The simplest solution is to add air conditioning capacity, but this is expensive and can't prevent failures on the inevitable occasions when the air conditioning temporarily fails. While adding air conditioning may be necessary, it also makes sense to evaluate the airflow conditions in the room in order to determine whether or not the existing capacity is being effectively utilized.

News In India, the two-year-old Cummins Research & Technology India center in Pune is playing an important role in helping the company slash development costs and time in its bid to best such arch-rivals as Caterpillar Inc. (CAT ) in building a new generation of diesel engines. Cummins is tapping India's immense pool of skilled, low-cost engineers.

The center's 100 engineers specialize in 3-D computer modeling and simulated testing of engines and components. They collaborate with R&D teams in each of Cummins' 20 other development centers worldwide. "We're involved in just about everything Cummins is doing," says John O'Halloran, a 12-year Cummins veteran dispatched in June, 2003, to build and staff the center.
