Title: Transportation Modeling Activities at the Transportation Research and Analysis Computing Center at Argonne National Laboratory
Biography: Dr. Hubert Ley leads a team of researchers at the Transportation Research and Analysis Computing Center at Argonne National Laboratory to advance the use of high fidelity transportation simulations throughout the US practitioner community. Dr. Ley received his Doctorate in Nuclear Engineering from the University in Aachen Germany, and joined Argonne's Nuclear Engineering Division in 1991. He worked on reactor accident simulations, the simulation of nuclear fuel performance, and on probabilistic risk analysis projects with the countries of the former Soviet Union under a Department of Energy project. He joined the team at TRACC three years ago to support the rollout of TRANSIMS and improve its modeling capabilities.
Abstract: The Transportation Research and Analysis Computing Center at Argonne National Laboratory was established with funding from USDOT to provide the largest high performance computing cluster to the USDOT transportation research community. Projects around the United States can utilize this high performance platform to run CPU-demanding applications. This includes open source packages such as TRANSIMS, as well as expensive commercial application in the areas of computation fluid dynamics and computational structural analysis. The main goal of the center focuses on its role as a computation center and appropriate user support, but targeted research is performed as well, especially in the area of evacuation transportation modeling for the Illinois Department of Transportation and the Department of Homeland Security.
