Simulations lead to design of near-frictionless material

21 julio 2015

Scientists used the Mira supercomputer to identify and improve a new mechanism for eliminating friction, which fed into the development of a hybrid material that exhibited superlubricity at the macroscale for the first time. Researchers helped enable the groundbreaking simulations by overcoming a performance bottleneck that doubled the speed of the team’s code.img src=»″ height=»1″ width=»1″ alt=»»/
