Designed especially for neurobiologists, FluoRender is an interactive tool for multi-channel fluorescence microscopy data visualization and analysis.
Deep brain stimulation
BrainStimulator is a set of networks that are used in SCIRun to perform simulations of brain stimulation such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and magnetic transcranial stimulation (TMS).
Developing software tools for science has always been a central vision of the SCI Institute.
aurora espCongratulations to Martin Berzins and the Carbon-Capture Multidisciplinary Simulation Center on their selection as one of ten computational science and engineering research projects for its Aurora Early Science Program starting this month. Aurora, a massively parallel, manycore Intel-Cray supercomputer, will be ALCF's next leadership-class computing resource and is expected to arrive in 2018.

Martin and his team will use Theta, a 9.65 petaflops system based on Intel's second-generation Xeon Phi processor and Cray's Aries interconnect for their project, Design and evaluation of high-efficiency boilers for energy production using a hierarchical V/UQ approach.

This project will simulate and evaluate the design of a next-generation, 500-megawatt advanced ultra supercritical coal boiler. In a coal-fired power plant, this design promises to reduce the boiler footprint 50%, saving costs and improving efficiency (53% efficiency, compared with traditional-boiler 35% efficiency), and also reducing CO2 emissions by 50% relative to a traditional boiler. Simulations on Aurora using the Uintah asynchronous many-task software will incorporate validation and uncertainty quantification (V/UQ), predicting thermal efficiency with uncertainty bounds constrained by observed data.
