In one newly funded HPC4Materials project, Los Alamos National Laboratory and Siemens Energy, Inc. will work to use high-performance computing to look at crack initiation and growth in forged parts (rotor components) for gas turbines. The project aims to enable better overall part reliability and a move toward greater than 65 percent energy efficiency, as well as allow for flexible operation in the emerging energy mix of renewables and fossil sources.
