The World of Tomorrow Is Today

Computational fluid dynamics and computational structural mechanics now are routinely employed in the design of vehicles, ships, and aircraft. The successful application of modern computational mechanics in a wide variety of industries suggests that it can and should be applied to transportation research and development. This article describes several recent and current examples of applied research that illustrate how FHWA and Argonne National Laboratory’s Transportation Research and Analysis Computing Center researchers are using high-performance computer clusters and computational mechanics to help solve transportation infrastructure problems, assess risks, and improve designs.
