    Avian influenza viruses (AIVs) undergo continuous antigenic drifts, causing annual epidemics in poultry and livestock that result in significant mortality and conspicuous socioeconomic losses. To design vaccines and mitigate epidemics, evolutionary characteristics of AIVs are typically studied through longitudinal surveillance and serological assays. However, such in vivo analysis is often reactiv... View full abstract»

    To reflect an evacuation process using a conventional agent-based approach to model human movement under chemical gas exposure, a scalable and hybrid agent-based simulation (ABS) model incorporates an interactive computational fluid dynamics (CFD) gas flow model. To embrace the hybrid ABS model, CFD model, and models for countermeasure in various domains, a scalable runtime infrastructure (RTI)-ba... View full abstract»

    Social relations and social networks are a vital part of our society. However, it's difficult to find out what a network might look like under slightly different circumstances. This is where artificial models and simulation can help. With the correct model, a wide range of networks can be created and their properties investigated. Such networks can be used to test and validate various hypotheses. ... View full abstract»

    This article presents the dimensional analysis conceptual modeling (DACM) framework, intended as a conceptual modeling mechanism for lifecycle systems engineering. DACM is a novel computer-aided method originally developed for military projects, but it's now available for other applications, too. The DACM framework is a powerful approach for specifying, discovering, validating, and reusing buildin... View full abstract»

    A finite-difference micromagnetic solver called Grace uses C++ Accelerated Massive Parallelism (C++ AMP). The high-speed performance of a single GPU is compared against a typical CPU-based solver. The speedup of GPU to CPU is shown to be two orders of magnitude for problems with larger sizes. This solver can run on GPUs from various hardware vendors, such as Nvidia, AMD, and Intel, regardless of w... View full abstract»

    Pore network modeling is a widely used technique for simulating multiphase transport in porous materials, but there are very few software options available. This work outlines the OpenPNM package that was jointly developed by several porous media research groups to help address this gap. OpenPNM is written in Python using NumPy and SciPy for most mathematical operations, thus combining Python's ea... View full abstract»

    Computers are the only research tools that by design exhibit chaotic behavior: a minimal change in the input to a computation can change its output in any imaginable way. Developers and users of scientific software should be aware of this feature and set up safety nets for protecting themselves against bad surprises. View full abstract»
