The U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science announced 56 projects aimed at accelerating discovery and innovation to address some of the world's most challenging scientific questions.

The projects will share 5.8 billion core hours on Titan and Mira, two of the most powerful U.S. supercomputers dedicated to open science, as part of the Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program.

"The program has a very strong and diverse collection of projects in 2016, and we look forward to working with investigators to ensure they succeed with their challenging objectives," says National Center for Computational Sciences director James Hack.

The 2016 INCITE award recipients include the University of Utah's Martin Berzins, who received 351 million core hours to study ultra critical coal boilers; Purdue University's Jonathan Poggie, who received 150 million core hours to study turbulent flows as they relate to high-speed aircraft, and Sandia National Laboratories' Jacquiline Chen, who received 96 million core hours to simulate turbulent combustion processes. In addition, Rutgers University's Gabriel Kotliar, Princeton University's James Stone, and the California Institute of Technology's Thomas Miller also received core hours on Titan and Mira via the INCITE program.
