Computational Science and Visualization Laboratory

Through the Canada Foundation for Innovation new opportunities program, a subset of faculty members involved in the Master of Science in Modelling and Computational Science program have established a Computational Science and Visualization Laboratory. The laboratory includes:

  • One SGI Fuel Visual workstation.
  • Six all-purpose dual-Opteron 250 IBM A Pro workstations.
  • A central data storage system.
  • The necessary infrastructure.

The SGI workstation is a specialized machine ideal for the visualization of 3D scientific data. The IBM workstations are used to run software such as MATLAB, MAPLE, and FEMLAB, which are indispensable tools for:

  • Preliminary investigation.
  • Problem formulation.
  • Less intensive visualization.
  • Complete analysis of moderately sized problems.
