Many simulation tasks require a high computational power of the underlying computer systems, frequently related to High-Performance Computing (HPC). Bavaria leads the German national ranking with respect to the usage of HPC systems. The supercomputer SuperMUC-NG is located in the Leibniz-Rechenzentrum (LRZ) in Garching close to Munich.
As of November 2018, this machine is the second-fastest system in Europe while applying ebullient cooling in a unique order of magnitude to reduce the energy consumption. Hence, the computational infrastructure provides – in combination with the scientific environment – optimal conditions for simulations and data analyses in the context of the “Bavarian Graduate School of Computational Engineering”.
