Spencer Bryngelson and research group

From the sky to the sea, and even inside our bodies, a simulator from Georgia Tech is helping us better understand aerodynamic fluid flows. And thanks to Frontier, the world’s fastest supercomputer, the simulator is even better.

Spencer Bryngelson’s research group manages the Multi-Component Flow Code (MFC) software package. His group was one of ten teams selected by Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) to optimize their simulator in a recent hackathon.
