Over the summer Principal Investigators (PIs) of all registered projects on N8 HPC were asked to complete a survey to demonstrate the impact of using N8 HPC on their research. This information has now been collated into an annual report which is released today.
A researcher from the University of Leeds using N8 HPC has been featured in Scientific Computing World. Dr Kirsty Pringle from the school of earth and environment used N8 HPC to run a global model of aerosol particles called GLOMAP.
Scientists at The University of Manchester have used Polaris, to simulate for the first time ever how one of the world’s largest dinosaurs would have walked.
- seed engagement between industry and academia around research using e-infrastructure
- develop skills in the use of e-Infrastructure across the N8 partnership
- share the asset of skills and equipment across the N8 partnership via the facilitation of networks of people
The initial investment will provide a focus for the aims above, comprising:
Centre - a distributed team of experts to help with optimising time-to-solution and industrial engagement
Facilities - a Tier 2 SGI 5,000+ core high performance computing facility
Accessing N8 HPC
N8 HPC facilites are available to all researchers based at N8 institutions subject to a light weight peer review. For more details on how to access the facility, please see "Getting Started".
