Example of a domain decomposition allowing each processor to solve a subpart of the entire problem.

Improving tools to model seismic wave behaviour and predict earthquake impacts

"Simulations used to take 24 hours, now I get results back in 2 hours. It has changed the way I work."

Exploring potential for new energy resources

"I am grateful to the NeSI team for assisting with the compilation of the TOUGH+HYDRATE code for this research."

Unlocking the power of ParaView to visualise the mechanical behaviour of pumice particles

"The help that we received from this NeSI consultancy project was crucial to our research project."
Subject: 

Enabling smarter heart surgery

"I was modelling a 109-vessel network and after four days the scenario had only 12 per cent completion...The NeSI Consultancy led to this time being cut down to seven-and-a-half hours for the full scenario run."
Subject: 
Computer model image of blood vessels

Modelling coronary artery bypass grafts

"With NeSI’s help, the more sophisticated vessel networks were being solved in several hours, whereas on prior estimates they would have taken a few months."

Mahuika models fractal patterns in murky water

"NeSI gave us the computational power to model these flows... Instead of being limited to a couple of metres in a lab we could simulate flows that covers kilometres of ocean floor.”

Supporting new innovations in image processing

“Having access to NeSI computing resources means that we can keep up with the state-of-the-art research in this area, otherwise we simply would not be able to run our code in a reasonable time.”

Wireless Body Area Networks

Enhancing Wireless Body Area Networks design and functionality

"High performance computing is essential for projects like mine when you need reliable and fast platforms to run these jobs.”

Modernising models to diagnose and treat disease and injury

“When you’re running several big CFD problems and looking at problems on the order of hundreds of thousands or millions of degrees of freedom, you need HPC."

Aerodynamics modelling paves the way for improved yacht designs

“Without computational resources such as the Pan cluster at NeSI, we would be unable to use accurate, yet computationally demanding, predictive methods such as Large Eddy Simulation."
