Steve Sun joins Predictive Science Academic Alliance Program Team on exascale micromorphic multiphysics porous and particulate material simulations

Oct 14 2021

Prof. Sun is one of the 15 members who participates in a $16.5 million research center funded by the Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (DOE/NNSA). The NNSA selected the team as one of nine new Predictive Science Academic Alliance Program III Centers to advance science-based modeling and simulation and exascale computing technologies. The objective of the center is to model the behavior of granular materials flow at multi-scales, which will help DOE to develop tools for safe handling and storage of high explosive materials and multi-functional additive manufacturing of cellular materials. Sun's team will collaborate with other members of the NNSA center to introduce machine learning enabled computer models to connect simulations and experiments from nanoscales to field tests.
