Brookhaven Lab named an NVIDIA GPU Research Center

Brookhaven Lab named an NVIDIA GPU Research Center

NVIDIA, the world leader in visual computing, has named the US Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory a 2016 GPU Research Center. Brookhaven Lab was recognized for its use of graphics processing unit (GPU)-accelerated computing to conduct research in fields including materials science, physics, and climate science, and for its vision to further the application of GPU-accelerated computing in those and other research fields with a high computational demand.

ORNL's benchmark data set validates global nuclear reactor codes

A re-analysis of nuclear fuel rods from a commercial reactor used improved radiochemical methods developed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and characterized more than 50 different isotopes and 16 elements with high accuracy. It produced an experimental data set with uncertainties many times smaller than those obtained by the earlier radiochemical analysis. Modeling and simulation experts at ORNL applied the more accurate experimental data to validate codes widely used by the nuclear safeguards research community.
