This DURIP project provided funds for computing hardware to upgrade the computing capabilities of Rensselaers Scientific Computation Research Center SCOREC. The primary driver for the requested system is our ongoing U.S. Army Research Office grant entitled Multiscale Methods for the Reliable Simulation of Multiphase Processes, W911NF-14-1-0301, Professors Assad A. Oberai, Mark S. Shephard and Onkar Sahni Principal Investigators. In addition to the core research, SCOREC has partnered with Simmetrix Inc. on a STTR project entitled Tools for Parallel Adaptive Simulation of Multiphase Ballistic Flows, W911NF-16-C-0117, for which a Sequential Phase II project will be funded. The efforts in these projects are directly related to supporting the U.S. Armys modernization priorities related to long-range precision fires. As part of these efforts we have developed collaborations with Donald E. Carlucci, Senior Research Scientist, U.S. Army ARDEC RDAR-DSM and Robert E. Dillon, Chief Science Advisor, U.S. Army ARDEC, RDAR-WSB and selected scientist working in their organizations. In addition, we have an ongoing DoD HPCMP PETTT project supporting the advancement and integration of our adaptive meshing technologies with CREATE-AV Helios code under AMRDECs Aviation Development Directorate and Proteus code of ERDCs Coastal and Hydraulics Lab. Furthermore, we have initiated efforts to address specific simulation needs of future vertical lift platforms working with Rajneesh Singh, Team Lead, Vehicle Integrated Analysis, U.S. ARL-VTD and Russell Gray, Program Manager, Advanced Programs, Sikorsky Innovations. In this area, we have interacted with the U.S. Army and Sikorsky to perform complex simulations.
