Launch of the High Performance Computing Cluster »Eddy«
ForWind – Center for Wind Energy Research has a new powerful High-Performance-Computing (HPC) Cluster available to investigate wind flows at rotor blades, single wind turbines and entire wind farms. With 5.856 computing cores and a computational power of up to 170 TFlop/s, the HPC-Cluster named »Eddy« is suited for simulations in the field of computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Additional computational power is available on the HPC-Cluster »CARL« at the Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg which contains a further 7.640 computing cores and up to 230 TFlop/s. With a total number of 13.496 cores, the alliance of both clusters reached no. 363 (no. 23 in Germany) in the worldwide Top 500 list of HPC clusters.
