MIT, Center for Ocean Engineering Vortical Flow Research Laboratory
directed by Professor Dick K.P. Yue is an 800 square ft laboratory
with advanced capabilities for simulation of complex vortical
resources of the lab are used by undergraduate and graduate students,
research staff and affiliates.
is performed utilizing powerful computer workstations and Linux
clusters, as well as computer-video image conversion and state-of-the-art
flow simulation animation technologies.
highlight of the VFRL computational facility is a 35 dual-node,
dual-core AMD Opteron Linux cluster from Microway.
Workstations include a quad-core, Xeon-based Linux platform, and
multiple Intel-based Linux and Windows XP PCs.
of the VFRL have extensive use of DoD HPC resources through sponsored
grants and Challenge Projects using upwards of 1 Million CPU hours
per year, since 1997.
