Software development for research into solid mechanics, particularly in High Performance Computing, has fallen behind other research areas such as fluid dynamics and chemistry, argues Lee Margetts, head of Synthetic Environments and Systems…

By Lee Margetts, University of Manchester.

Scientists use a variety of computational techniques in their research, and many disciplines benefit from access to High Performance Computing (HPC) to solve their grand challenge problems. There are established communities with mature HPC codes in physics, earth science, cosmology and more. Computational chemists recently won the Nobel Prize for their efforts, highlighting the benefits of investing in high quality scientific software for HPC. I believe that computational solid mechanics can now join the HPC club.

In computational…
