Research

Collaboration with Industry

There are a number of routes for collaborative research and innovation projects between research teams within the Supercomputing Wales consortium universities and the private sector to undertake innovative research projects that use the supercomputing facilities, strengthening opportunities for wide reaching impact.

This is consistent with the research impact agenda that has emerged from the UK research assessment exercise, which judges the Higher Education sector on the extent to which research impacts on the world beyond academia, with opportunities for Welsh companies to be part of these developments that will benefit the wider economy.

Target research areas for Supercomputing Wales include:

  • Nano scale materials and advanced engineering
  • Energy and the environment
  • Life sciences and health
  • The Digital Economy

All areas offer significant opportunity for collaboration with industrial partners, potentially increasing employment opportunities and supporting economic regeneration in the knowledge economy in Wales.

First ever detection of gravitational waves

At Cardiff University, the Gravitational Physics Group who in 2016 announced the first ever detection of gravitational waves as part of the LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory) consortium will benefit from the upgraded Supercomputing Wales facilities. In the coming years, gravitational waves will allow researchers to peer into the cores of exploding stars and probe the structure of neutron stars, potentially revealing completely new and unexpected phenomena that will challenge our current understanding of the universe.

Building the world’s fastest boat

Supercomputing Wales is contributing to the dream of building the world’s fastest boat. To address the design challenges presented by the complex behaviours of spray and turbulence, as well as an interaction surface between the boats which is dynamically-changing and a complicated shape, researchers at Swansea University applied methods used widely in aerodynamics. With HPC, the design team could use state-of-the-art techniques, like shape optimisation, and artificial intelligence techniques to efficiently generate AI-developed aero and hydrodynamic profiles for high-speed vessels.
