Centralised Computing Facility

      A high performance computing cluster “Bhaskara1” has been established as a centralised computational facility to meet the simulation needs of the projects being handled by the scientists. The cluster comprises of 1 Head Node, 10 compute Nodes and 1 Storage Node. The hardware is housed in two smart racks. The computing facility will enable numerical simulation of compute-intensive problems such as those involving wave propagation, computational fluid dynamics and shock response of structures. The aim is to contribute to the development of technologies for evolving new / smart materials, formulation of efficient analysis methodologies towards disaster mitigation, condition assessment and health monitoring of structures, etc. In addition, the facility can be used as a backbone for undertaking compute-intensive sponsored research projects and high-end consultancy services.
