Computational Simulation of Beating Human Heart Run on Sequoia Supercomputer


The Cardioid code divides the heart into a large number of manageable pieces, or subdomains. The development team used two approaches, called Voronoi (left) and grid (right), to break the enormous computing challenge into much smaller individual tasks. A November 14 article in ISGTW (The International Science Grid this Week) highlighted recent work carried out […]
