Center for Computational Design

The Center for Computational Design operates two Linux clusters and one Linux server. The first cluster (prigogine) comprises 48 cores (2.4 GHz AMD Opteron) with 48 GByte RAM. The second cluster (tupolev) comprises 48 cores (2.4 GHZ AMD Opteron) with 24 GByte RAM. The operating system is Debian Linux. The Linux server (zhukovsky) comprises 32 cores (AMD) and 64 GByte RAM with three NVIDIA Tesla C2075 GPU units. The operating system is Ubuntu Linux. Available software includes CFX, ICEMCFD, modeFRONTIER and TECPLOT.

The Center for Computational Design occupies Engineering B112. The laboratory is equipped with Dell Model C521 workstations and 17 inch flat panel screens. The operating system is Ubuntu Linux.

NSF Engineering Research Center for Structured Organic Particulate Systems (C-SOPS)

The Engineering Research Center for Structure Organic Particulate Systems (C-SOPS) brings together a cross-disciplinary team of engineers and scientists, as well as industry leaders, to improve the way pharmaceuticals, foods and agricultural products are manufactured. C-SOPS will focus on advancing the scientific foundation for the optimal design of SOPS with advanced functionality while developing the methodologies for their active control and manufacturing. Joining Rutgers University in the Center are Purdue University, the New Jersey Institute of Technology and the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez, schools with established teaching and research programs in engineering, pharmaceutical sciences and technology.
