5600 Computational Sciences Building

The Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) is located here. This building also is the home of Titan, the nation’s most powerful supercomputer for open science. Supercomputing enables researchers to study the behavior of neutrons in a nuclear reactor core, long-term climate forecasting, and the viability of promising new drugs for diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

EVEREST is a scientific laboratory that provides tools for analysis and visualization of simulation data generated on the OLCF supercomputers. The laboratory’s largest display wall—which measures 30 ft × 10 ft—enables scientists to view and interact with large data sets in a 3D environment and contributes to the understanding and discovery in a wide range of applications, including materials, climate science, nuclear energy and technology, and astrophysics.
