Field of application:

  • image processing and recognition (including aerospace images);
  • meteorology;
  • human genetics;
  • medicine;
  • traffic problems;
  • geological prospecting;
  • voice analysis and synthesis;
  • radar and optical signals processing;
  • identification and selection of complicated objects in real time;
  • hydraulic and gas dynamics;
  • situation prediction;
  • modeling and virtual impact testing of complicated technical construction;
  • new materials creation, electromagnetic compatibility;
  • large volume information storage and processing;
  • molecular and atomic physics.

System software, engineering environment of parallel programming:

Supercomputer system software upholds parallel programming and computation in distributed environment.

Basic operating system for control computer and computational nodes is Linux Fedora Core 2.

Main operating environment of parallel programming for MPI standard and Infiniband protocol – MVAPICH package. It is available to work with LAM package and auxiliary network Gigabit Ethernet.

System tools for applied software development include programming language compiler С, С++, FORTRAN, automatic and dynamic problem parallelization system (T-system), which decreases carry-over time of successive program code to parallel computer system.


Licensed application software:

  • commercial version of LS-DYNA for solving the problems of nonlinear high speed dynamic process;
  • commercial version of system STAR-CD for hydro and gas dynamic problems solving;
  • academic license of Fluent 6.2 for hydro and gas dynamic processes modeling;
  • Pro/E, SolidEdge, Inventor 9 for creation of computer spatial objects and models.
