Cutting-edge projects awarded computing time on Blue Gene/L

Nine computing projects ranging from predicting protein structure to simulating the formation of foams have been awarded large amounts of time on IBM Blue Gene/L computer systems at the U. S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory and IBM's T.J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, N.Y. The computer time is available to researchers through the Department of Energy's INCITE program -- Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment.

These projects were allocated nearly 10 million processor-hours through the Argonne and IBM collaboration. Five are new projects, and four are renewals.

In new endeavors:

  • Kelly Anderson at Procter & Gamble Co. will investigate the molecular mechanisms of bubble formation in foams to help develop better fire control chemicals and environmentally friendly consumer products.
  • Giulia Galli at the University of CaliforniaDavis, in collaboration with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, will simulate water in confined spaces to study water flow and transport at the nanoscale relevant to both materials science and biological problems.
  • Paul Fischer at Argonne National Laboratory, with collaborators at the University of Illinois, will study turbulent thermal transport in sodium-cooled reactor cores in order to gain an understanding of thermal mixing that can lead to improved safety and economy of advanced reactors.
  • Phani Nukala at Oak Ridge National Laboratory will simulate the physics of fracture that may resolve controversies about how the presence and distribution of disorder impacts materials fracture propagation and related properties.
  • Tamar Seideman at Northwestern University will model the manipulation of light at the nanoscale, with potential applications in solar energy, sensors and chemistry.

In renewed projects:

  • David Baker at the University of Washington will undertake the high
