HyGie-Tech USA receives CCNI supercomputer use approval
The Science, Technology and Innovation Division (NYSTAR) of New York’s economic development agency has named HyGie-Tech USA as an approved user of the Computational Center for Nanotechnology Innovations (CCNI) supercomputer at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) and the RPI Technology Park in Troy, NY.
HyGie-Tech USA, based in Albany, NY, provides particle and airflow modelling software and services that use HG_Flow technology, a high-performance risk oriented computational fluid dynamics system (roCFD) to support the protection of critical infrastructure, pharmaceutical manufacturing, hospitals, biochemical research labs and cleanrooms against airborne contamination.
By applying specialised routines, algorithms, and a database of 13,000 potentially harmful agents to data acquired from a 3D laser scanner or digitised drawings, HG_Flow creates highly-accurate models of airflow and particle movement within the scanned environment. The software’s high-speed calculations do not require a supercomputer, but will use the CCNI machine for r&d.
The CCNI is a partnership between RPI, IBM, and New York State to promote nanotechnology and miniaturisation electronics.
