Our use of supercomputers is enabled by the codes developed to model and simulate complex physical phenomena on massively parallel architectures.
Using the Miranda code and the Ruby supercomputer, an LLNL team has taken a closer look at how nuclear weapon blasts close to the Earth’s surface create complications in their effects and apparent yields.
LLNL has turned to AMD and Penguin Computing to upgrade a supercomputer to help in the fight against the novel coronavirus. The computer's name is... Corona. The 2018 system, named for the total solar eclipse of 2017, will nearly double in peak performance to 4.5 peak petaflops.
