Computer Aided Engineering
The Department of Energy and NASA have both recently identified a need to make it easier for most workers to use CAE, and leverage HPC to do it:
"Computational Science has become the third pillar of science... Despite the great potential ...HPC has been underutilized ...hurdles remain for wider adoption especially for small and medium sized manufacturing and engineering firms"
The solution to this problem must: "minimize user intervention...single engineer/scientist must be able to conceive, create, analyze, and interpret a large ensemble of related simulations in a time-critical period (e.g., 24 hours)...full automation is essential."
