Spencer Bryngelson group Frontier Hackathon 2023

Group Optimizes Fluid Dynamics Simulator on World’s Fastest Supercomputer

School of CSE Assistant Professor Spencer Bryngelson’s research group manages the Multi-Component Flow Code (MFC) software package. His group was one of ten teams selected by Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) to optimize their simulator in a hackathon held Oct. 31 – Nov. 3.

During the hackathon, the group crafted MFC to run on Frontier, the world’s only exascale supercomputer. With newfound experience on Frontier, the group is poised to work with exascale machines scheduled to come online soon, like Aurora and El Capitan.

The team used the hackathon to refine MFC, making it more capable for medical, aeronautical, and defense applications.
