Engine research on Theta is recognized with two HPCWire Readers' Choice Awards

HPCWire announced its annual Readers' and Editors' Choice Awards today at SC20. We’re proud that our Theta supercomputer supported two of the winning teams. For the 'Best Use of HPC in Energy' award, an Argonne team used the ALCF's Theta supercomputer to run the largest-ever combustion engine flow simulation. For the 'Best Use of HPC in Industry' award, researchers from Argonne, Aramco Research Center (Detroit), and Convergent Science used the Argonne computing resources, including Theta, to resolve micron-scale manufacturing defects in fuel injector geometries for the first time.
