Discovering Novel Topological Materials

Prof. Abhishek Singh’s lab in Material Research Centre has used SERC HPC facility in 2017, involving 14.4 million core hours, for computational modelling of materials, especially in applications, where extensive computational resources were required. Read more…

 

Flow and Handling of granular Materials

The flow and handling of granular materials, such as foodgrains, ores and pharmaceutical powders, is important part of numerous industrial processes, yet fundamental understanding of their mechanics is lacking. To help develop such an understanding, Prof. Prabhu Nott’s lab in Chemical Engineering department of IISc have studied the kinematics and rheology of granular materials by Discrete Element Method simulations.  Read more…

 

Study of Short-Term Weather Events

Prof. Arindam Chakraborty’s lab of Centre for Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (CAOS) of IISc addressed how extreme (short-time) weather events modify (long-term) climate.  Read more….
