Enhanced HPC Combustion Services

To achieve decarbonization, there needs to be a consideration of the potential fuels of the future and the fundamental issues associated with their utilization in practical applications.  To overcome these limitations,  there is a need to address key technological bottlenecks towards the implementation of low-carbon technologies and create a joint and collaborative strategy.

Each of these technology barriers are associated with the Exascale Application Challenges (EAC) are presented below:

EACs

CoEC identifies the EACs as key breakthroughs towards the implementation of low carbon technologies to bridge the gap between scientific developments and operational HPC combustion services.

The impact of the technological advances of CoEC on these EACs will be graded through specific Exascale Challenge Demonstrators (ECDs), which represent targeted simulation studies to evaluate the accuracy, reliability, and performance of the codes and, eventually, measure progress in terms of TRL increases.
