NekCEM/Nek5000 named R&D 100 finalist

August 11, 2016

The project NekCEM/Nek5000: Scalable High-Order Simulation Codes has been named a finalist in the 2016 the R&D 100 Awards, which are given by R&D Magazine to 100 top new technologies for the year.

Nek5000/NekCEM is a joint effort of Misun Min and her team in Argonne’s Mathematics and Computer Science Division in partnership with Paul Fischer (now at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign).

The NekCEM/Nek5000 high-performance software package allows accurate and efficient simulation of electromagnetics, fluid flow, thermal convection, combustion, and magnetohydrodynamics. A key feature of the package is its ability to run on platforms ranging from PCs to the world's largest parallel computers.

This year’s winners will be announced in November at the R&D 100 conference in Oxon Hill, Maryland.
