Abstract : This equipment grant has been utilized to acquire one high end graphics workstation with two fast processors, adequate memory, disk space, peripherals, and software to adapt the capabilities of our previously existing workstation laboratory to the increasing demand of current research. The workstation is used as compute and file server, for the visualization of large data volumes, and for the development and testing of new software for interactive flow simulations on distributed processors. The equipment has accelerated the progress of our research, enabled the use of interactive visualization techniques to enhance insight into the dynamics of fluid flow, and advanced the development of computational software for high performance computer architectures.
