UMIT Research Lab

UMIT Research Lab is an environment for fundamental research in computational science and engineering. Innovative software tools for simulation and high-performance computing are developed and tested in collaboration with industry partners.

The development of hardware architectures with a multidue of cores, parallel computing, visualization and elastic IT infrastructure is rapid. This brings new possibilities for technical and scientific computing, new software tools and services for handling large amount of data rapidly. UMIT Research Lab focuses on developing new solutions in knowledge in simulation technology that unleashes the new computing powers.


Million grant for the future of supercomputers

Umeå University, together with three international partners, has been granted over 36 million sek to a major research project on methods and software for future supercomputers.

Formas grant for planning and optimizing route planning for forestry machines

Eddie Wadbro from UMIT Research Lab / Department of Computing Science is teaming up with Ola Lindroos at SLU and researchers from LTU and Oregon State University to minimize the damage made by forestry vehicles in the terrain using 3D-laser scanning and optimal route planning.

Designing microwave devices from scratch using computer simulations

2015-05-26 (from 2015-05-21)
For decades, the fundamental design of microwave devices, such as antennas for mobile communication and waveguides used in radars, has essentially relied on the inventiveness of a professional designer. Computer simulations are usually used only in final design stages to fine-tune details in the des...
