PHYSICAL SCIENCES & ENGINEERING

Building for the future

Work carried out in the physical sciences and engineering can have a vast impact on us all. Whether asking big questions, tackling problems such as climate change & energy usage, or just making our everyday lives run more smoothly, the application of innovative computational technology makes a real difference.

The Centre works with a wide range of partners from departments within the University; with industrial collaborators; and on large scale, high-profile, international projects. The multidisciplinary nature of the Centre puts us in a unique position to bring tools, techniques, technologies and expertise to areas as diverse as astronomy, biochemistry and energy supply.   

Investigating how the latest many-core technologies can deliver energy and cost efficiency in the area of radio astronomy HPC

Current Projects

OPS
The OPS project is developing an open-source framework for the execution of multi-block structured mesh applications on clusters of GPUs or multi-core CPUs.

Past Projects

Existing electricity distribution management systems (DMS) have been designed using operational and algorithmic procedures that are highly centralised.
The Oxford e-Research Centre has a 96 core Dell cluster installed with MS Cluster Compute Server version 1. The cluster is arranged with both thick (quad dual core) nodes and thin (dual dual core) nodes.
This pilot will deliver a public-private hybrid cloud architecture and two demonstrators providing higher level services for the support of research.
