Transportation Research and Analysis Computing Center (TRACC) Year 6 Quarter 4 Progress Report

Argonne National Laboratory initiated a FY2006-FY2009 multi-year program with the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) on October 1, 2006, to establish the Transportation Research and Analysis Computing Center (TRACC). As part of the TRACC project, a national high performance computer user facility has been established, with full operations initiated in March 2008. The technical objectives of the TRACC project included the establishment of a high performance computing center for use by USDOT research teams, including those from Argonne and their university partners, and the use of advanced computing and visualization facilities for the performance of focused computer research and development programs in areas of interest for USDOT. The project was reauthorized for FY2010 and operated for 6 years. This final project report for Year 6 of the project (Y6Q4) summarizes the principal activities associated with the operation of the computing center and in the performance of the computational research in the key application areas identified by USDOT as its highest priorities. As defined by the Year 6 Statement of Work (SOW) the activities and objectives for the sixth year of the project are: (1) traffic modeling and simulation and emergency transportation planning; (2) computational fluid dynamics for hydraulics and aerodynamics research; (3) multi-dimensional data visualization; and (4) computational structural mechanics applications.
