Research team improves code to benefit industrial engineers

Jul 12, 2018 — 

Columbus, Ohio (July 12, 2018)  The Ohio Supercomputer Center’s (OSC) Karen Tomko, Ph.D., and the University of Illinois/Urbana’s Robert Dodds, Ph.D., recently wrapped up a project that will greatly enhance the simulation capabilities of manufacturing engineers.  

Tomko and Dodds were co-principal investigators on the Intel Parallel Computer Center project, a two-year project with the goal of code modernizing WARP3D, an open-source code used by engineers to optimize the robotic welding process for heavy equipment. It is a code used in industry, government laboratories and academia for 3D nonlinear analysis of solids using finite elements.
