Visualization of a hydrodynamic phenomenon
// S&T Highlights
Lawrence Livermore will be among the world’s first high-performance computing (HPC) centers to deploy an exascale-class system.
a HYDRA simulation of an inertial confinement fusion implosion
// S&T Highlights
Researchers gain new insights into why small eviations from perfect spherical symmetry can lead to significant distortions of the implosion and ultimately degrade inertial confinement (ICF) fusion performance.
