Kudos to Sandian Dr. Jackie Chen, whose work on exascale computing systems was recently featured in the National Geographic’s ‘Daily News’ section. Entitled “Supercomputing Power Could Pave the Way to Energy-Efficient Engines,” the news article focused on how the world’s most powerful supercomputers provide critical knowledge to spur the design of more fuel-efficient cars.
CRF manager Daniel Dedrick and researcher Isaac Ekoto participated in a recent meeting of the International Energy Agency. Hosted by Air Liquide in Paris, the meeting focused on Task 31 of the Hydrogen Implementing Agreement, which focuses on Hydrogen Safety. Researchers at the CRF are leading the subtask focused on hydrogen behavior for safety research.
On April 23, a group of combustion researchers from the United Technologies Research Center (UTRC) visited the CRF. Led by manager Dr. Catalin Fotache, the UTRC researchers met with senior managers Art Pontau and Andy McIlroy, manager Daniel Dedrick, and others to speak about experimental diagnostics, modeling and simulation with respect to turbine engines.
