Scientific Computing and Simulation

The Department of Scientific Computing and Simulation (SCS) provides the scientists at KIT with a variety of infrastructures and services relating to High Performance Computing (HPC). These task is considered as an integrated service that takes into account all aspects of scientific computing and the use of technical scientific applications. The service spectrum ranges from the operation of various high performance computing and high performance file systems via the provision of comprehensive basic software, including compilers, libraries, debuggers and batch systems, up to a broad range of application software for a variety of technical and scientific areas as well as the application-specific user support and training.

The high-performance computers for research purposes ForHLR operated by SCS is a tier-2 class system nationally available for research projects. In addition, SCS performs services for all universities of Baden-Württemberg in the context of the bwHPC concept – among others, SCS is operating the bwUniCluster as system for basic provision with HPC resources at the tier-3 level.

The Simulation Laboratories (SimLabs) address interdisciplinary research and development, particularly the improvement of scientific application software for the efficient use of supercomputers and distributed systems. In close collaboration with disciplinary scientific groups the SimLabs are making their own contributions in several application areas of scientific computing.
