From June 18 - 22, 2017, the International Supercomputing Conference 2017 (ISC) took place once again in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. The ISC is one of the biggest and most important events regarding HPC. JARA-HPC's scientists presented current research activities at their new booth and were actively involved in the conference.
A team from DWI-Leibniz Institute for Interactive Materials in Aachen, RWTH Aachen University, and the University of Bonn has now developed a foliar fertilization system based on biocompatible microgels that adhere selectively to leaves for a long period and slowly deliver nutrients in a controlled fashion.
On April 4 2017, the Opening Workshop for the new Simulation Laboratory Quantum Materials (SLQM) took place at JSC. The workshop featured a number of scientific talks given by leading experts from the Forschungszentrum Juelich, RWTH Aachen University and the Universitè de Liegé.
The QuTech institute in Delft as well as Forschungszentrum Jülich and RWTH Aachen University, both partners of the Aachen Jülich Research Alliance (JARA), have intensified their collaboration through an official agreement.
In order to provide help for the forging operator the IBF is working on very fast forging simulation models. With these models it is possible to simulate the current pass much faster than in real time. This method has been tested on industrial scale forging presses.
