High Performance Computing (HPC) is used by researchers and students to aid discovery and innovation in the fields of science, engineering, medicine and business.

We made TOP500 in November 2016!

The Imperial's cx2/helen SGI ICE X high-end parallel system is in TOP500 after the last upgrade.

Helen placed at 394th place with LINPACK performance of 430 Tflop/s.  More details are available here

Research driving innovation for industry: Predicting properties of matter

PROFESSOR OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERING, CLAIRE ADJIMAN

"We have been using high performance computers to develop automated computer-based methods of predicting differing patterns, called polymorphs, of molecules.

"The method we have developed at Imperial College London is being used by research groups around the world to advance crystal structure prediction and our understanding of molecular solids."
