Abstract

Abstracts are not currently available in GtR for all funded research. This is normally because the abstract was not required at the time of proposal submission, but may be because it included sensitive information such as personal details.

Description The computations carried out with this equipment has shown us how magnetic fields play a crucial role in many astrophysical objects such as stars, accretion discs and galaxies.
Exploitation Route Our work has stimulated others to use many of our computational techniques to study astrophysical magnetic fields. The UKMHD Consortium is still an active user of UK computational resources through the STFC DiRAC facilities. As this facility under this award ended in 2012 recent publications and outcomes are now attributed to the DiRAC facility.
Sectors Education

 
Description This award is for a computing facility for UK MHD researchers. As well as contributing to our understanding of the role of magnetic fields in Astrophysical objects, it has also led to the development of numerical algorithms with more general application. The work of UK MHD continues but now has access to computing resources through the STFC DiRAC facility.

PI Contribution Warwick was a host site for one of three HPC clusters bought for the UKMHD Consortium. The Consortium is UK wide and has over 40 members in University academic groups. Warwick managed a compute resource available for the whole consortium.
Collaborator Contribution Two additional HPC clusters were procured and managed for the UKMHD Consortium by the Universities of Leeds and St Andrews.
Impact In total across the three HPC sites procured under this grant there have been around 200 publications resulting from work done on the UKMHD Consortium clusters.
