Innovative Technique Earns LLNL Team the Gordon Bell Prize

Abstract:
Using groundbreaking computational techniques, a team of scientists from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and IBM earned the 2007 Gordon Bell Prize for a first-of-a-kind simulation of Kelvin-Helmholtz instability in molten metals on BlueGene/L, the world's fastest supercomputer.

By performing extremely large-scale molecular dynamics simulations, the team was able to study, for the first time, how a Kelvin-Helmholtz instability develops from atomic scale fluctuations into micron-scale vortices.

"This has never been done before. We were able to observe this atom by atom. There was no time scale or length scale we couldn't see," said Jim Glosli, lead author on the winning entry, titled "Extending Stability Beyond CPU Millennium: A Micron-Scale Simulation of Kelvin-Helmholtz Instability."
