High Performance Computing for Multi-Scale and Multi-Physics Phenomena

Research Supervisor
Genki Yagawa
Director / Professor, Center for Computational Mechanics Research, Toyo University
Year Started


Eligible research projects will be those of high-grade and large-scale software, intended for simulation of multi-scale and multi-physics phenomena, based on computer environments (including grids) of over Tera-flops . Special emphasis placed on whether or not the research is of a world-leading nature, unique in terms of concept and idea and effective in its applications. From the view of reliability of the solutions, we expect to have research projects with due consideration to evaluation and verification of accuracy of the solutions, intended for high efficiency of large-scale input/output data handling and improved processing speed and better cost performance. We will also welcome proposals with full applicability to industry and real society, and framework which enables the developed software to grow autonomously after the funded period. We invite field-fusing and area-fusing research which encourages joint proposals by experts of different fields or with overseas advanced groups, and close cooperation with experimentalists, theoreticians as well as experts of informatics and computational science, etc. In this case, the judgment on selection will be made in consideration of whether the proposal has sufficient ties among various researchers.
