From November 18 to 21, students from all over the world will demonstrate their skills in building and running supercomputers during a supercomputing competition SC19 in Denver, USA. For the first time, a joint team form the Baltic States will take part in the competition. Latvia will be represented by Rihards Henelis, a student at […]
ANSYS is a universal software used for engineering simulations throughout the product life cycle. Among other tools, ANSYS package includes simulators for three physical process: structures, flow mechanics (CFD), and electromagnetism that can interact with each other.
In October 2018, the Latvian Institute of Organic Synthesis held Gromacs practical workshop with the aim to introduce the Baltic scientists with the possibilities of using this software in various scientific fields where it is necessary to understand and model the behaviour of molecules on the atomic level.
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 […]
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.
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.
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.
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.
On 10 April 2017, RTU held SolidWorks seminar “Engineer the future: From idea to final product”, in which the possibilities provided by the Edu license purchased by RTU were discussed.
The seminar was hosted by Mikkel Marott, an expert of SolidWorks Education representing PLM Group, the official distributor of SolidWorks in the Northern Europe and Baltic States.
Riga Technical University HPC Centre in cooperation with MathWorks organised a workshop “Parallel computing with MATLAB”, which took place at RTU Faculty of Power and Electrical Engineering on 12 October 2016.
The workshop was hosted by Raymond Norris, who is a parallel computing engineer representing the MATLAB headquarters, USA.
MATLAB and Simulink are used in more than 5000 universities all over the world by millions of students. Considering that, on 26 May 2016, RTU Faculty of Power and Electrical Engineering held a seminar “How to teach using MATLAB and Simulink”, which was hosted by Rohit Agrawal, MathWorks Education Technical Specialist.
The faculty and students were introduced to the available resources, like MATLAB Academy, Cody Coursework, MATLAB Academic Online Training Suite, and MATLAB mobile.
PLM Group is pleased to invite you to SOLIDWORKS Education seminar!
SOLIDWORKS® Education edition is the all-inclusive resource for teaching 3D mechanical CAD, design validation, and data management. On the seminar we will talk about how to make the best use of the software and give valuable skills to the students.
