Dr. David P. Weber, "The Transportation Research and Analysis Computing Center (TRACC): Modeling, Simulation and High Performance Computing Resources for the US Department of Transportation at Argonne National Laboratory"

Dr. David P. Weber, Research Program Director and TRACC Director, Argonne National Laboratory, will present a seminar.

Time: 1:30 pm
Location: 1000 SEO

The objective of the USDOT funded program is to establish the Transportation Research and Analysis Computing Center (TRACC), a high performance computing and engineering analysis research facility, featuring a state-of-the-art massively parallel computer system, advanced scientific visualization capability, high speed network connectivity and modern engineering analysis software, located at Argonne National Laboratory's site at the DuPage National Technology Park. This project will provide an advanced computing environment for use by the USDOT community, providing specific applications support in key areas of applied research and development. The advanced computing facility is being linked to USDOT research and development facilities, state departments of transportation and university transportation research centers. Argonne partners include the University of Illinois' National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), the NCSA Technology, Research, Education and Commercialization Center (TRECC) and Northern Illinois University.

The primary function of the TRACC facility is to provide large scale parallel computing capability for research and development projects. Although TRACC is a general purpose advanced computing facility available for use by the USDOT community for a broad range of applications, specific applications and technologies have been identified to have highest priority for research and development and user support. These initial applications include (1) traffic modeling and simulation and emergency transportation planning; (2) computational fluid dynamics for hydraulic and aerodynamic research for bridges and other critical highway structures; (3) multi-dimensional data visualization; and (4) computational structural mechanics and methods for analysis and optimum design of safety structures and analysis of transportation related infrastructure.

Brief Bio for Dr. David Weber:
Dr. David Weber, Research Program Director in Argonne's Energy Systems Division, is the TRACC Director. Dr. Weber has been at Argonne since 1974 and has held several positions in research and development programs and technical management, including serving as the Director of three Argonne divisions, including the Computing and Telecommunications Division, the Reactor Analysis and Engineering Division, and the Nuclear Engineering Division. Dr. Weber's research and technical management activities have emphasized the use of advanced computing technologies and development and application of advanced methods for computational science and engineering. Specific applications have been focused in the transportation industry, nuclear engineering, and homeland security.
