The FHWA and Argonne TRACC researchers developed an alternative computational technique that couples structural mechanics software with fluid dynamics software to anticipate incipient motion of large rocks in river environments.
The FHWA and Argonne TRACC researchers applied the results to verify the size and placement of riprap that had been installed to protect piers at the Middle Fork Feather River Bridge located on State Route 89 in Plumas County, CA, near the towns of Blairsden and Graeagle, close to the intersection with highway 70.
FHWA and Argonne TRACC researchers are studying methods to dissipate energy at culvert outlets discharging flow onto steep slopes.
New Brunswick's subsidy to TRACC
comes in two parts, Richardson says.
Department of Transportation (USDOT) and ANL established TRACC as a general purpose advanced computing and visualization facility available for use by the transportation community for a variety of applications.
The TRACC components include high-performance computing, visualization, and networking systems.
The ON TRACC team, based at the Greenlane Clinical Centre, consists of psychologists, a psychiatrist, social workers, cultural advisers and a behavioural support worker.
ON TRACC is working to capacity, having had 24 referrals since the service began and with 12 young people and their families presently being seen.
Some refugees were highly educated but their skills were not always recognised in New Zealand, said Mortensen, who is also a member of the ON TRACC board.
The Argonne National Laboratory is leading the initiative to establish a high-performance computing center, TRACC, to pursue transportation research and development (R&D) programs.
The TRACC researchers used STAR-CD (software for modeling fluid dynamics), while the TFHRC team used Fluent, Inc.
The models generated by TRACC
have the potential to save lives by providing researchers with a better tinder-standing of crash behaviors so they can enhance roadside safety structures.
