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.


Grant for research on simulation of flowing granular material

Vinnova grants four million kronor on a two-year research project run in collaboration between Umeå University, Algoryx Simulation, LKAB and Optimation. The industry fund the project with an equal amount. Detailed computer simulations will enable new methods for control of systems for processing and...
