The High Performance Computing (HPC) resource provides researchers with the resources they need to answer complex questions in science, engineering and mathematics. More than 150 staff, researchers and students benefit from the use of the HPC.
Researchers from the Peninsula Research Institute in Marine Renewable Energy (PRIMaRE) use the HPC to find new energy solutions that capitalise on the tremendous power of ocean waves.
Meanwhile, researchers from the UK Quantum Chromodynamics (UKQCD) Collaboration use the HPC to study the interactions among subatomic particles such as quarks and gluons. HPC resources help this consortium of research groups from Plymouth, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Liverpool, Oxford, Southampton, and Swansea universities to study the behaviour of matter in extreme conditions, such as in the first instants after the big bang or at the core of a neutron star.
