PaCER, changing the science and research landscape

Understanding flow-induced processes at a molecular level is a weighty challenge that could not be tackled without the use of supercomputing. But this materials science research will impact many industrial applications in lubrication of gears, engine bearings and magnetic hard drives. It is just one of the projects supported by the PaCER program, which helps researchers optimise their algorithms, codes and workflows for next-generation supercomputers such as Setonix. PaCER – Pawsey Centre for Extreme Scale Readiness – is
