  15. Illinois team uses Ember to simulate 1 million-grain cube of steel

    Researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign used NCSA's Ember to simulate the elastic-plastic transition, or the change from reversible to irreversible deformation, of a 1 million-grain cube of grade-316 steel under pure shear stress. It is thought to be the largest nonlinear simulation in which each grain has different material characteristics. Read more
