Mason researchers to receive funding for GPU-based computing cluster
May. 3, 2021

Three researchers from George Mason University are set to receive funding from the U.S. Department of the Air Force, under the DURIP program, to purchase a graphics processing unit (GPU)-based computing cluster. This High-Performance Computing Cluster (HPC) resource will help the team to design software and algorithms for simulation, control, and optimization of processes involving complex Multiphysics and Machine Learning relevant to the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). As the researchers have also been involved in creating converters that allow them to run DoD legacy codes on GPUs, they will further develop the converters and extend them to emerging variants of OpenACC or CUDA.
