What sort of research is the HECToR supercomputing facility used for and what simulation software does it make use of?

EPCC measures the use of different simulation codes used on the HECToR facility to get an idea of which codes are used most and what size of jobs different code are used for. In this post I will take a look at which codes are used most on the facility and speculate whether we can infer anything from the patterns we see.
