Energy Department Announces $3M For High Performance Computing Collaborations For U.S. Manufacturers
February 13, 2018 / Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced up to $3 million in funding for 10 projects to help American manufacturers leverage the national laboratories high performance computing (HPC) capabilities to address manufacturing challenges through state-of-the-art modeling, simulation, and data analysis. This funding will support collaboration between manufacturers and the national labs that will aid in decision-making, innovate in processes and design, improve quality, predict performance and failure, quicken or eliminate testing, and/or shorten the time of adoption of new technologies.
The High Performance Computing for Manufacturing (HPC4Mfg) program, which is supported by the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s (EERE) Advanced Manufacturing Office, enables the use of HPC expertise and resources for the manufacturing sector to address research and development challenges with HPC and investigate its use to support advanced energy and manufacturing issues...
