Shodor and the Blue Waters project have selected 18 undergraduate students from across the country to participate in the Blue Waters Student Internship Program for 2017-2018. Interns will learn to apply high-performance computing to problems in science, mathematics, and engineering through the year-long program. Their experience will begin in late May with a two-week Petascale Institute at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA).

Shodor and the Blue Waters project have selected 19 undergraduate students and three graduate students from across the country to participate in the Blue Waters Student Internship Program for 2015-2016. Interns will learn to apply high-performance computing to problems in science, mathematics, and engineering through the year-long program. Their experience will begin later this month with a two-week Petascale Institute at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA).

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has awarded access to the Blue Waters supercomputer—which is capable of performing quadrillions of calculations every second and of working with quadrillions of bytes of data—to 22 campus research teams from a wide range of disciplines. The computing and data capabilities of Blue Waters, which is operated by the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), will assist researchers in their work on understanding DNA, developing biofuels, simulating climate, and more.

It may be hard to imagine, but you can live without a heartbeat. Though as you may have guessed, medically speaking, it is not ideal. Patients with terminal heart failures, often times while waiting for a donor heart, are put on ventricular assistive devices such as artificial hearts. Artificial hearts work as axial or centrifugal pumps, carefully designed to pass six to ten liters of blood per minute, a rate that is close to the flow from a normal heart. Axial flow devices have a spiral propeller that takes in blood and pushes it forward continuously. Arif Masud, a professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, says to think of it like a fan in a room; as long as it is running, air is continuously blowing in a uniform fashion.
