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 […]

Sandia Combustion Chemist to Be Awarded Polanyi Medal

Sandia’s Craig Taatjes (in Sandia’s Combustion Chemistry Dept.), whose ground­breaking work on Criegee intermediates has provided scientific insight into hydrocarbon combustion and atmospheric chemistry, has been selected to receive the prestigious Polanyi Medal by the International Symposium on Gas Kinetics. “The list of previous recipients of this award includes some of my greatest scientific mentors […]

Four CRF Papers Presented at the International Conference on Hydrogen Safety

CRF researchers presented four papers at the 5th International Conference on Hydrogen Safety, held September 9–11 in Brussels, Belgium. ICHS 2013 focused on progress in safety of hydrogen technologies and infrastructure, as crucial/essential means to enable the transition to a zero carbon energy system. The conference was hosted by the Joint Research Centre (Institute for […]
