Gromacs workshop

GROMACS is one of the most commonly used software for molecular dynamics simulations. It can be used for simulation of different chemical, biological and physical processes at atomic level. It helps to explain the results of experiments, reduce the cost of laboratory experiments, partly replacing them by computer simulations, and to generate ideas how to […]

Training “Introduction to Matlab” by HPC Centre

Following the successful round of training in the previous year, the HPC Centre repeated the introductory course for RTU researchers and faculty. The basics of Matlab software were revealed and mastered in eight classes under the supervision of Dr.sc.ing. Māris Tērauds.


In summer 2018, some newest generation and more powerful computing nodes were added to the RTU cluster.

Doctoral students can apply for Science Support Fund financing

The students of RTU Doctoral studies can use the HPC cluster (supercomputer) in their research, and we invite students to apply for the Science Support Fund financing.
Co-financing in the amount of 80 % is granted to non-commercial doctoral researches but not more than EUR 500 to a single student in one academic year.

HPC Centre organises training “Introduction to SolidWorks”

Join the training “Introduction to SolidWorks”!

Faculty, researchers, and students interested in research and innovations are invited to apply to training “Introduction to SolidWorks” starting on 26 March (Easter Holiday). The training will be given by RTU Professor Modris Dobelis, and will provide basics of computer-aided design using the software SolidWorks.

Comsol Multiphysics Workshop

On 19 January, HPC Centre together with Optek organised an introductory workshop to Comsol Multiphysics.
Participants were introduced to the Comsol Multiphysics software and its functionality. Comsol Multiphysics is used for numerical simulation of physical processes and allows calculation of heat and fluid transfers and solving of electrical, mechanical and chemical problems. The workshop mainly dealt with the following Comsol Multiphysics functionalities — problem definition, calculations, and result processing, and participants performed calculations using their own computers and the previously issued software licences.
