A Workshop for Ohio Industry Engineers

Intergraph Corporation will present a Virtual Product Development Using Finite Element Analysis workshop on May 24, 1994, at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), 1224 Kinnear Road, Columbus, Ohio. This presentation emphasizes the role of analysis in the design of a new product. It elaborates on the work flow during the evolution of design from "art to part" utilizing latest CAD-CAM Concurrent Engineering technology.

Columbus, Ohio -- April 20, 1994 -- At the 46th Annual State Science Day on April 16, 1994, the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), Columbus, recognized Turpin High School (Cincinnati) Senior Adam Vandenberg for Outstanding Application of Computational Methods for his State Science Day Research Project.

Columbus, Ohio -- April 19, 1994 -- Former IBM Fellow, Dr. Andrew Heller, will discuss such topics as "why evolution (death of Dinosaurs) is good" and why improved healthcare is bad for the computing industry at the upcoming High Performance Computing Seminar sponsored by the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC).

Ohio Industry and Education to Benefit

Columbus, Ohio -- April 18, 1994 -- The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) takes delivery today of a 32 processor CRAY T3D -- an entry-level massively parallel processing (MPP) system. The system will be closely coupled with a CRAY Y-MP2E parallel vector supercomputer system installed at the same time. The new CRAY system fits well into OSC's existing CRAY Y-MP8/864 and Y-MP-EL/332 computing environment.

Columbus, Ohio -- February 8, 1994 -- As a part of The Ohio State University Summer Institute, fifteen students will have the chance to work with Ohio's supercomputer - a computer normally reserved for professional scientists and engineers! Summer Institute attracts gifted and talented students to Columbus each summer for two weeks of exciting and challenging learning.

Columbus, Ohio -- January 25, 1994 -- Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) Research Scientist Don Stredney was selected to present "Biomedical Applications of High Performance Computing" at the Medicine Meets Virtual Reality II conference in San Diego, California, January 27-30, 1994, sponsored by the University of California San Diego School of Medicine.

Columbus, Ohio -- January 14, 1994 -- Software development specialists at the Ohio Supercomputer Center have released Local Area Multiprocessor (LAM) to the parallel processing and cluster computing community. LAM has been ported to several leading UNIX machines such as Sun, SGI, RS/6000, DEC APX and to Cray running UNICOS. LAM is freely available under a GNU license via anonymous ftp from tbag.osc.edu or from gopher at gopher.osc.edu. URL is gopher: //gopher.osc.edu:70/Software/Trollius.

Columbus, Ohio -- December 20, 1993 -- The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) and Cray Research, Inc. (NYSE: CYR) today announced an agreement under which OSC will acquire a 32-processor, "entry-level" version of the CRAY T3D massively parallel processing (MPP) system. The new CRAY system will fit well into OSC's existing Y-MP8/864 and Y-MP-EL/332 computing environment. The agreement calls for OSC and Cray Research to use the new systems to collaborate on advanced research projects including medical imaging. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Columbus, Ohio -- September 22, 1993 -- OSC and ACCAD are participating in two Advanced Communications Technology Satellite (ACTS) experiments, one which may greatly impact the Great Lakes Region by forecasting changing weather patterns; and one which will affect the delivery of medical services to rural and remote locations.

Brief synopses:

Columbus, Ohio -- September 22, 1993 -- An experiment on the Advanced Communication Technology Satellite (ACTS) which seeks funding from the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) under the Communication Networking Program has the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), Columbus, Ohio, partnering with the University of Hawaii (UH) and Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC). This research grant of $2.7M for two years plus one optional year is sought by Principal Investigator Dr. David Y. Y.
