Jackie Chen, distinguished member of technical staff at the Combustion Research Facility, has received an Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) award from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.
Jackie has received 96 million core hours to simulate turbulent combustion processes as they relate to fuel-flexible stationary gas turbines and fuel-efficient clean internal combustion engines using biofuels to simulate fundamental turbulent combustion processes.
The announced 56 projects are aimed at accelerating discovery and innovation to address some of the world’s most challenging scientific questions. The projects will share 5.8 billion core hours on America’s two most powerful supercomputers dedicated to open science. The diverse projects will advance knowledge in critical areas ranging from sustainable energy technologies to next-generation materials.
The INCITE program promotes transformational advances in science and technology through large allocations of time on state-of-the-art supercomputers. Researchers from academia, government research facilities, and industry received computing time through INCITE. The program was created as the primary means of accessing the DOE Leadership Computing Facilities at Argonne and Oak Ridge national laboratories.
