Sandia’s Exascale Computing Effort Expected to Curtail Effects of System Faults

Computing power today is more potent than ever before. Or is it? In many applications, yes, but when it comes to sophisticated, detailed modeling of the Earth’s climate, an analogy of using an abacus to track the national debt may be only a slight exaggeration. “To accurately predict the Earth’s climate over the next 200–300 […]

New Conceptual Insights into Diesel Engine Fuel-Injection Processes

By combining advanced theory and high-fidelity large eddy simulation, Combustion Research Facility (CRF) researchers Rainer Dahms and Joe Oefelein (both in 8351) have provided new conceptual insights that promise to improve the understanding and prediction of fuel-injection processes in high-pressure diesel engine conditions. Their results, which experiments performed by CRF researchers Lyle Pickett and Julien […]

Portable Hydrogen Fuel-Cell Unit to Provide Green, Sustainable Power to Honolulu Port

Clean hy­drogen power that’s expected to lower emissions and reduce energy consumption will be coming to the Port of Honolulu in 2015 after the completion of a new fuel-cell technology demonstration, one that could lead to a commercial technology for ports worldwide. Ports have been a major water- and air-pollution source in the U.S.—but remained […]

Sandians as Guest Editors of Modeling & Simulation in Materials Science and Engineering Focus Section

Many vital needs in worldwide energy production, from electrifying trans­portation to enhancing renewable-energy production, depend on developing economical, reliable batteries with improved performance and safety. Meeting these needs will require dramatic changes in electrical energy storage materials and chemistries. New methods and computational capabilities offer the potential that modeling and simulation can fundamentally advance improved […]

Sandia Has Signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Case Western Reserve University

The memorandum of understanding (MOU) initiates a relationship between our institutions to better leverage our inherently complementary energy research strengths—focusing on R&D activity in utility-scale power and includes energy storage (batteries, capacitors), grid integration of renewable-energy resources, real-time residential and industrial energy management and control, lifetime degradation and science and various forms of advanced energy […]
