The Met Office/NERC Cloud model (MONC) has been developed in a collaboration between EPCC and the Met Office. MONC delivers a highly scalable and flexible Large Eddy Simulation (LES) model capable of simulating clouds and other turbulent flows at resolutions of tens of metres on very large domains.

EPCC will be exhibiting at this year’s Supercomputing in Engineering Show at the Derby Roundhouse on the 15th and 16th April. The show is run in parallel with the Engineering Simulation Show and attendance is free, so this is an ideal opportunity for you to come and talk to us about how we can help transform your simulation and modeling activities using High Performance Computing.

Collaboration with UK Met Office

We are working with the UK Met Office on a project to rewrite one of their weather forecasting models. Whilst the best known weather model is the Unified Model (UM), which generates the national and international forecast on a scale of 1km, the Met Office also has a number of other specialist models that concentrate on specific areas.  An example of this is in the study of cloud and cloud convection, in which case one often uses a Large Eddy Simulation (LES) model which handles turbulence in much more detail.

The Fortissimo project, which is coordinated here at EPCC, gives companies a low-risk opportunity to try out HPC. By combining it with cloud computing, they can gain the benefits without buying and running their own systems. Here are three examples of HPC in action under Fortissimo.

While EPCC has always encouraged its MSc students to undertake real-world industry projects, we’ve never actually had a formal industry projects programme in place. Well, that’s all changed!

Fortissimo! Digital simulation and modelling for European industry

I am very pleased to announce the start of Fortissimo, a 3-year project led by EPCC that will focus on the development of a Cloud of HPC resources for use, initially, by European manufacturing companies, particularly small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Doing better business with HPC

EPCC is part of SHAPE (SME HPC Adoption Programme in Europe), a Europe-wide programme designed to spread the benefits of advanced computing to smaller companies by giving them the expertise to use HPC to develop new products, services or ways of working. SHAPE is supported by PRACE, the pan-European Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe .

Access to HPC for scientists: DECI-11 Call extended
