 IU Trident Indiana University

Indiana University High Performance Computing partners with Indiana businesses for Economic Development 

  • Solving grand challenge problems in manufacturing, simulation, and product engineering/design: Indiana University first provided limited compute cycles on Big Red as part of a 2006 partnership with the Indiana Initiative for Economic Development (IIED). The university now provides cycles on the Big Red II supercomputer to assist state businesses.
  • Ensuring economic advantages over competitors: Partnerships within state business and industry lead to higher productivity, innovative product design, and faster time to market.
  • Advancing industrial knowledge: Cummins Engine exemplifies a successful industrial partnership in the state of Indiana. Using compute cycles on Big Red II and GPU-based chemistry solver software, researchers were able to perform engine combustion calculations of oxygen and temperature – the first such calculations done anywhere.

Grant competiveness leads to job creation in the state of Indiana

  • By bringing in more than $136 million in grant awards since 1999, the Pervasive Technology Institute and its partners have facilitated 2,094 years worth
