Blue Waters models lung airflow
Biologists are learning that lungs in vertebrates seem to evolve and adapt to the environment. But there is still much to learn, and NCSA's Blue Waters supercomputer is enabling those discoveries.
GPUs on Blue Waters solve 44-year-old black hole question
Scientists conducted the most detailed simulations of a black hole to date using a custom code and the GPUs on Blue Waters. A number of theoretical predictions regarding accretion disks have finally been validated.
Blue Waters helps predict Australian wheat yield
A new study published in Agricultural and Forest Meteorology shows machine-learning methods can accurately predict wheat yield for the country two months before the crop matures.
