Alternative solutions for traffic issues

Researchers are using XSEDE-allocated resources to realistically simulate the minutiae of traffic in Austin at specific locations and during specific time intervals. These particular models are novel in that they account for how traffic changes at distinct time periods, for instance how congestion builds up during the morning rush hour and then slowly dissipates.

Modeling the flu

Researchers are using XSEDE-allocated resources to perform transformative simulations of the flu virus that will enable an entirely new understanding of its structural biology. This work is an important first step on the path to fully understanding the influenza infection process. Read more
