Share Your Science: Accelerating Digital Rock Physics with GPUs

James McClure, a Computational Scientist with Advanced Research Computing at Virginia Tech describes how they are using the NVIDIA Tesla GPU-accelerated Titan Supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Their project involves mathematical models combined with 3D visualization to provide insight on how fluids move below the surface of the earth. This can ultimately be used to extract oil or to obtain ground water for a well.

Read about James’ work in more detail on his recent GPU Computing Spotlight interview on Parallel Forall.
