Texas A&M ANSYS & ABAQUS Community Working Lunch
Texas A&M’s High Performance Research Computing (HPRC) hosted a community working lunch on Friday December 16th for researchers that utilize the ANSYS and Abaqus software packages. These programs, available on the HPRC systems, are used for material and mechanical modeling and simulation in a wide variety of industrial and academic disciplines. They allow users to conduct finite element modeling to solve mechanical problems and conduct structural analyses, fluid and electromagnetic simulations, and heat transference modeling. The users met to discuss the best way to bring together researchers that use these software packages from across the university; the goal being to create a community that can offer community led support and guidance. This first community gathering brought together Texas A&M HPRC users from several university departments, including the Texas A&M Transportation Institute, Biomedical Engineering, Materials Science & Engineering, Nuclear Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Industrial and Systems Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Physics. Users were given the opportunity to meet and engage with other researchers over a sponsored lunch and discuss various aspects of their own research. The group then got to learn how some users are utilizing ANSYS and Abaqus to solve problems ranging from identifying stress points in bone tissue implants to computational modeling of ductile fracture failures in metals during several brief research presentations. Given the success of this inaugural event, the HPRC has offered to host another community gathering for ANSYS and Abaqus users early in 2023. Researchers who use these software suites, or those who are interested in learning more about how they might incorporate ANSYS or Abaqus into their own research projects, are invited to attend.

Department of Visualization Data Center Tour
Texas A&M University's Department of Visualization graduate course led by Philip Galanter toured the Teague data center to learn more about various hardware systems provided by HPRC. On the tour, they learned about high performance interconnectivity/fabrics, power, cooling and Cybersecurity. In addition, student were presented with HPC software resources and engaged in topics including MPI and OpenMP parallelization, compilers, and advanced rendering software.
Summer Computing Academy (2017-2019)
Texas A&M High Performance Research Computing (HPRC) held its first HPRC Summer Computing Academy from July 24 to July 28, 2017. Twenty-one high school students from College Station, its surrounding areas, and even as far as Florida, learned how to program on a Raspberry Pi computer, experimented with cool Pi sensors such as buzzers and LED lights, and even built a computing cluster using the Raspberry Pis. The participants also enjoyed tours of the A&M campus and some of its facilities. To cap it all off there was a reception with cake, ice cream, and sodas for the participants and their parents.
HPRC would like to thank the TAMU community for all their support:
- Texas A&M University Division of Research
- Laboratory for Molecular Simulation
- Texas A&M University Information Technology
- Texas A&M University Engineering Information Technology
Data Science Bootcamp
The Texas A&M Institute of Data Science (TAMIDS), Texas A&M High Performance Research Computing (HPRC), and the Texas Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) held a two-day hands-on data science bootcamp on August 19 & 20, 2019. This camp introduced the fundamentals of Data Science to students and researchers from Texas A&M University, Blinn College, and Minority Serving Institutions in Texas.
