What Do Surfers and Electrons Have in Common

In this blogpost I will try to explain the project in which I am participating. The project is called Visualisation of Electron – Phonon Coupling in Organic Semiconducting Materials. I am assuming that the main target audience for this blogpost is

If you can visualize the shape, you can understand the system

James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879) was a Scottish theoretical physicist. His most prominent achievement was the formulation of a set of equations over which we walked in the hallway of James Clerk Maxwell building at EPCC supercomputing centre (University of Edinburgh). His

One framework to simulate (nearly) every problem: Welcome, OpenFOAM!

The topic of our projects in Istanbul is simulation and visualisation of bioflow in coronary arteries. Since a lot about visualisation software such as ParaView and Visit has already been said, today we want to introduce the simulation software we will

Para arriba…

After two weeks in Barcelona I have to say that applying for SoHPC was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. It’s not only the everlasting warm weather, sand beaches, unique architecture, lots of places to visit, great people

Site Spotlight: EPCC, UK

Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland. A picturesque city of about half a million people, known as the “Athens of the North” during the enlightenment due to its classical architecture and intellectual activity, is on the UK tourism map, second only to London,

Discovering the Energy of the Future

The essence of our projects is adding new functionality to existing software. However, as software is only a means to an end, a question arises right away: what is it going to be used for? The answer is an exciting

Plasmary, plasmary night

What is the best way to visualise a vector field? In 2D, the answer is obviously field lines since they elegantly show both the direction and, by their proximity to one another, magnitude of the field. Since the lines never

Making the science flow

My project here in Ljubljana, Slovenia, is entitled “Visualisation support for scientific workflows with VisIt Kepler actor”. This is specific enough for anyone not knee deep in the field of scientific modelling to not have any clue as to what

The Three Musketeers in Ljubljana (Slovenia)

The journey to Ljubljana was a long one – especially for Mathi and Evguenia, who had to catch a flight from Edinburgh at 6am and had a layover in Amsterdam. Nevertheless, after plenty of naps on the plane, the two

First glimpse of the data

Over the past year or so, I’ve gotten quite used to loading .dat files of row data into matlab for visualisation. In matlab it’s easy, just type “load(‘filename’)” into the command line (or matlab script) and matlab returns an array
