Even in the coldest, harshest environments, the HPCMP delivers.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) wanted to determine a better approach to deciding when and how to elevate the Scott-Amundsen South Pole Station over the ever-accumulating snowdrift. Using a combination of weather and climate models and a flow solver used for rotorcraft analysis applications, researchers at the US Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory used HPCMP systems' Onyx at the ERDC DoD Supercomputing Resource Center and Koehr at the US Navy DSRC to run simulations of snowdrift scenarios at the South Pole Station over both one-winter and five-year timescales. These calculations will allow teams to plan building maintenance years in advance.
The HPCMP helps solve complex construction challenges, wherever they may be.
