An LLNL team has published new simulations of a magnitude 7.0 earthquake on the Hayward Fault—the highest-ever resolution ground motion simulations from such an event on this scale.
Computational Scientist Ramesh Pankajakshan came to LLNL in 2016 directly from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. But unlike most recent hires from universities, he switched from research professor to professional researcher.
Researchers from Lawrence Livermore and Berkeley Labs are using supercomputers to quantify earthquake hazard and risk across the Bay Area.
Highlights include Computation’s annual external review, machine learning for ALE simulations, CFD modeling for low-carbon solutions, seismic modeling, and an in-line floating point compression tool.
