Faculty at the Center for Scientific Computing and Visualization Research.

The Center for Scientific Computing and Visualization Research at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth focuses on computationally-driven research that addresses the pressing needs of modern engineering, mechanics, fluid dynamics, and electromagnetics. Our annual HPC Day event howcases on-going scientific research in Massachusetts that is enabled through high-performance computing.

The research groups at the Center span a wide range of the applied sciences departments at UMassD, including

CSCVR faculty member awared NIA grant
August 23, 2017
CSCVR faculty member Scott Field (Mathematics) was recently awarded a $26,560 grant from the National Institute of Aerospace to assess the viability of discontinuous Galerkin methods for solving challenging fluid simulation problems (such as rocket reentry) of interest to NASA Langley. Work will be carried out with collaborators Alireza Mazaheri (NASA Langley) and Aakash Kardam (UMass Dartmouth masters student).
