The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre


SUPERcomputing and BIG data for researchers @Curtin University


Registrations are closed. If you are still interested in finding out about Pawsey Services please subscribe to our mailing list or check Pawsey calendar of events on our website.


This event will showcase services and resources that Pawsey Supercomputing Centre can provide to Curtin University researchers to take their research to the next level.  There will be time in the morning for existing users and potential users to have one-on-one assistance with Pawsey staff.  This will be followed by presentations from Pawsey and existing Curtin users of Pawsey then networking.

You are booking for the presentation only. This session will go from 10am to 11.30am. However, Pawsey staff will be at the venue from 9am, waiting to help researchers at a drop in clinic.

Date: Friday 22 September 2017

9.00am to 10.00am Drop in clinics (no require booking)

10.00am to 11:30am Presentations (please book here for catering purposes)

Location: Open area at Cisco Innovation Centre, Level 2, Building 216, Curtin University, Bentley Campus

Cost: Free


9.00am Drop in Clinics, a one-on-one session for researchers to meet with Pawsey experts and discuss opportunities, seek for technical advice on how Pawsey can help with a scientific project or get help with code issues.

10.00am Welcome by Pawsey staff

10.05am Researcher presentation about the impact that Pawsey services have on a science project.

  • Dr Andrew King, Senior Lecturer from the School of Civil and Mechanical Engineering at Curtin University. Computational Fluid Dynamics and Supercomputing
  • High Performance Computing (HPC) has been a significant development for computational Science and Engineering. One technique that has benefited greatly is Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) – a tool for understanding fluid systems by directly solving the Navier-Stokes equations through simulation, in contrast to experimentation. Large HPC systems (such as Pawsey’s “Magnus”) have allowed CFD to be used to investigate previously intractable problems as models can now be developed with finer detail and/or more complexity. This presentation will give an overview of applied fluid problems that have been greatly assisted by Pawsey’s systems in the fields of multiphase flows (filtration and separation), biomedical flows (aerosol drug delivery in the lungs), and renewable energy (Wave Energy Conversion).

10.30am Pawsey Supercomputing Staff presenting about Supercomputing, Data and Visualisation services

11.30 am Q&A and networking session. Light lunch will be provided.
