HPC A Great Enabler in Advancement of Chemical Technology and Science

SESSION: HPC Impact Showcase Tuesday

EVENT TYPE: HPC Impact Showcases

TIME: 11:40AM - 12:20PM


ROOM:Booth 3947

Early in the 1990s, The Dow Chemical Company (TDCC) ventured into the arena of computational fluid dynamics simulations using a supercomputer at NCSA. The purpose was to understand fluid migration and absorption by the superabsorbent (Drytech® particles) in baby diapers. Since then Dow has been performing computational simulations not only to solve problems but also to advance discoveries in chemistry. Today Dow uses over 4,000 CPU cores for a multitude of research projects, manufacturing process design, problem solving, and process optimization. HPC has also enabled better materials design and models for plant troubleshooting. Recently Dow Agro Sciences (DAS) used HPC to identify and validate millions of direct numerical simulation (DNS) variants from thousands of plants. Such discovery is an important piece of the DAS pipeline for new variety development. HPC enabled Dow researchers to meet stringent timelines and deliver implementable solutions to businesses. HPC provides the platform where large, complex, reacting flow models can be analyzed in parallel to significantly shorten the delivery time. Dow¹s science and engineering community advances technologies and develops cutting-edge computational capabilities involving complex multiphase reactive processes in dispersion applications, possible only with the advancement of high-speed, high-capacity, and large-memory HPC systems. This presentation will demonstrate the wide application of HPC across disciplines and businesses in Dow. Many invention disclosures, priority applications, patents, external papers, and internal research reports have been directly based on the results of computational simulations. HPC is definitely an integral part of the scientific process at TDCC.
