The OFFshore ITRH has been awarded over 15 million core hours under the 2020 Pawsey supercomputer allocation scheme in order to undertake analysis for the project “Optimising the design and operation of offshore oil and gas facilities using numerical modelling”. The project aims at developing new knowledge and technologies that will improve the design and operation of Australian oil and gas extraction and transportation systems through the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics. Without access to Pawsey Supercomputing Facility this ground breaking work could not be achieved.
The project team includes OFFshore ITRH members Liang Cheng (Lead CI), Lifen Chen (Delegated lead CI), Andrew Grime (CI) and Hugh Wolgamot (CI). The hours awarded are a significant increase from last year’s core allotment and are noteworthy as the application field was highly competitive.
An additional 0.5 million core hours have also been awarded through the National Computational Merit Allocation Scheme (NCMAS) 2020 to support these works.
Congratulations to everyone involved!
