NAS Modeling and Visualization Through the Years | 4D Pipeline - trends & breaking news in Visualization, Mobile, 3D, AR, VR, and CAD. | Scoop.it

Timeline of the 30-year evolution in modeling and simulation, performed on supercomputers operated by the NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) Division at NASA's Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley—from the first Cray system in 1983 to NASA's flagship supercomputer, Pleiades, today. As systems and codes have improved, scientists and engineers have been able to produce increasingly accurate, detailed simulations for U.S. aerospace and science research projects ranging from the fluid dynamics within fuel injectors for aircraft, to massive computer models of Earth's ocean and atmosphere.
