Bede Case Studies

Read case studies from researchers using the Bede supercomputer.

George Leaver

University of Manchester

Bede is N8 CIR's high-performance computing platform. In this case study George Leaver, of Research IT at the University of Manchester, explains his role in supporting researchers to access the system and the capabilities its unique GPU-accelerated architecture adds.

  Bede Utilisation at the University of Manchester


As High Performance Computing experts, OCF were able to deliver a new supercomputer to cater to several northern universities that met those needs and allowed them to possess the computing power capable of carrying out their research tasks quickly and efficiently

Marta Camps Santasmasas

University of Manchester

Dr Marta Camps Santasmasas is a PDRA in the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering at the University of Manchester.

Her research is focused on new ways of modelling urban wind flow using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations. Highly accurate simulations of sub-regions are run on GPUs and combined with less accurate, CPU-derived, models for very large areas of the domain. The result is faster, higher accuracy predictions for key regions of the model.
