Story Highlights

The Texascale Days event in December 2020 provided an opportunity for nine research groups to use large sections of the National Science Foundation-funded Frontera supercomputer at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) to solve problems that in many cases have never been attempted.

Researchers simulated the full SARS-CoV-2 viral envelope; compared side-by-side models of main sequence stars to see the effects of gravity waves; benchmarked community codes at large-scale in preparation for exascale computing; and simulated the first 20 minutes of a massive tornado-producing storm.

Texascale Days occur roughly every three month and fulfill Frontera's goal of allowing researchers to take advantage of the system's full capabilities for science and engineering research.
