Computational simulations of mechanical devices


In 2014 the Center for Computational (CCR) received funding through Empire State Development Co. (ESDC) to build a compute cluster to support economic development throughout New York State.  Since then, CCR has supported over 34 companies including Sentient Science, who drew on CCR’s staff expertise and computational resources to advance its ability to create computational simulations of mechanical devices. By allowing the company to access the power of UB’s supercomputers and the expertise of its research staff, Sentient Science was able to improve operational efficiency in wind turbines worldwide.

To further CCR’s mission to help foster economic development in Western New York, ESDC has funded a new cluster which is expected to be available in Summer 2021.
