Summer School - HPC for Engineering Simulation

The STFC Hartree Centre (in Warrington, UK - located between Manchester & Liverpool) is running 4 high performance computing summer schools from June to July 2016. They are primarily aimed at PhD students and postdoctoral researchers, but are also open to academics and industry at no extra cost. The tuition fees are subsidised by STFC and each week only costs £150. There is a 1 week school on each of the following topics:

  • Big Data
  • Engineering Simulation
  • Visualisation
  • HPC

I am leading the "Engineering Simulation" school which focuses on high performance computing for solid mechanics. The engineering week covers a different theme each day: (1) Open source software for parallel finite element analysis; (2) Dealing with uncertainty using stochastic methods; (3) Image-based mesh generation using X-ray tomography data; (4) Multiscale modelling, coupling grain scale cellular automata to continuum finite elements and (5) Emerging technologies for simulation. 

Each theme covered during the engineering week presents the relevant theory, real engineering case studies and provides hands-on tuition using advanced open source and proprietary simulation tools (including ParaFEM, ParaView and Simpleware).  To find out more about the course, please follow the links for the "Engineering Simulation" course timetable and registration.
