Streamlining Development of a Multimillion-Line Computational Chemistry Code

Streamlining Development of a Multimillion-Line Computational Chemistry Code

Computational science and engineering projects have goals and development strategies that can be quite different from those in the traditional scientific software engineering domain. However, methodologies developed by and for software engineers can be both applicable and helpful to the scientific software development process. This article presents a case study of applying the software engineering strategy of continuous integration to the Assisted Model Building with Energy Refinement (Amber) molecular dynamics code.

Solving Solid and Fluid Mechanics Problems in the Cloud with mOSAIC

Solving Solid and Fluid Mechanics Problems in the Cloud with mOSAIC

An application for analysis of structures under static loading is ported to the cloud using the mOSAIC portable platforms-as-a-service. The new cloud application benefits from Web availability, elasticity, and fault tolerance, while being independent from the infrastructures-as-a-service provider. Read full article »
