multiscale scheme illustration

Computational multiscale modelling of failure in flax fibre composites

“My two-scale simulations could not have been performed without the use of NeSI’s HPC clusters.”
Subject: 
Colour coded digitised image slice

Multi-scale modelling of saliva secretion

“Thanks to NeSI, we were able to render higher quality images and run many more simulation variants than would have been possible on a desktop computer.” Prof. James Sneyd

Improving the treatment of heart disease

“Improving stent design by measuring the impact on blood flow may significantly reduce stent failures and ultimately save lives.”
Subject: 

A new spatial model for estimating New Zealand soil carbon

"Using NeSI resources we substantially reduced the compute time of our data analysis from 21 days to less than one day."
Subject: 

Estimating migration rates in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae

"With the help of the NeSI staff we were able to reduce the time it took to run the analysis by 80 times."
Subject: 

The formation of surface archaeological deposits in arid Australia

"NeSI staff developed customised shell scripts that allowed us to generate thousands of simulated populations in rapid succession on the NeSI cluster."
