The amount of information available digitally grows dramatically every year. A wide variety of applications generate enormous volumes of very useful data, such as logs of queries submitted to search engines, mobile call records, communication network traffic traces, open-source information like newspaper articles and web pages, email messages, messages on Twitter and Facebook, records from financial and operational transactions, and so on.
The main objective of this research project is two-fold: (1) to develop predictive High Performance Computational (HPC) models for underbody blast and its effects on personnel and vehicles, and (2) to develop nonlinear Model Order Reduction (MOR) methods that are applicable to these and other HPC models in order to enable
New HPC machines have many more processors than previous architectures but have much smaller local memories associated with each processor and more levels of memory hierarchy, at least some of which need to be explicitly managed by software. Along with these changes in the computing platform, the increase in problem size and complexity of the simulations requires changing many of the numerical methods that have been traditionally adopted i
Numerical simulation of physical phenomena is of great importance to the military as it can be used for designing better weaponry, training new recruits or for testing equipments to be used in the field. The core research is to develop an open-source platform for physics simulations which can be used by researchers in academia, industry and the military for tackling real-world problems. The PI is working to develop:
This project has two components. One component is to study the adhesion of blood platelets to an injured vessel site. This is a critical initial stage for the formation of a platelet plug to stop bleeding. The second component is to study the deposition of aerosol particles in the lungs to help study the effects of airborne pollutants, and infective and toxic agents.
Among the biggest challenges in harnessing the power of nanotechnology is achieving dynamic control of mechanical, chemical and electronic properties of nanoscale devices. Many devices stand to benefit from such control including transistors, sensors, actuators, energy harvesters, motors, robots and other locomotive devices.
This research will explore the use of cloud computing to get closer to the reality of the Warfighter having the “right” information, at the “right” time, at the “right” place, and displayed in the “right” format. Using cloud computing in battlefield scenarios can be challenging for several reasons: (1) Applications have different levels of complexity and deadlines in terms of time-to-solutio
The core focus of Towards Real-Time Computing for Applications in the Field is to research technologies that are suitable for field deployment and applicable to problems that are important to the Army. This project plans to focus on the development of two primary systems: a real-time imaging system for a UWB ground-penetrating radar for real-time detection of IEDs, and a real-time EEG system to monitor soldier performance in stressful field theatres. Both of these pro
