Description

Argonne National Laboratory, one of the U.S. Department of Energy's oldest and largest national laboratories for science and engineering research, employs roughly 3,200 employees, including about 1,600 scientists and engineers. Argonne's annual operating budget of around $750 million (FY17) supports hundreds of research projects. Argonne regularly works with large and small companies, other federal agencies, and state and local governments to address scientific and technical challenges and seize opportunities.

Mission

The mission of the Laboratory is to apply a unique mix of world-class science, engineering and user facilities to deliver innovative research and technologies. We create new knowledge that addresses the most important scientific and societal needs of our nation.

Facilities:

Argonne scientists and engineers carry out both fundamental and applied scientific projects and maintain a number of large scientific user facilities that enhance research, especially projects that use hard X-rays and advanced computers. User facilities include:


·         Advanced Photon Source (APS)

·         Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM)

·         Argonne Tandem Linac Accelerator System (ATLAS)

·         Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF)

·         Atmospheric Radiation Measurement Climate Research Facility (ARM)

Success Stories

By collaborating with Argonne and software developer Convergent Science, Inc., heavy equipment manufacturing giant Cummins gained access to cutting-edge computer modeling and analysis tools and expertise that allowed it to achieve major advances in fuel economy and reduce development costs and time-to-market for engines.

Argonne, through its Virtual Engine Research Institute and Fuels Initiative (VERIFI), has developed engine models and software for large-scale computer simulations that provide – in virtual space, before costly physical production ever begins – a better understanding of how internal combustion engine parameters interact.

As part of a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA), Cummins, Argonne, and Convergent Science, Inc., conducted simulations on Cummins engine products, focusing specifically on the fluid dynamics of fuel injectors. Argonne’s fuel spray modeling capabilities and advanced load-balancing algorithm technologies: allow for more reliable analytical calculations; lower dependence on experimental engines and prototypes, and accelerate new engine concepts and design to market.

VERIFI’s products have won a prestigious Federal Lab Consortium (FLC) Award as well as an HPC (High-Performance Computing) Innovation Excellence Award.

CRADA Outcome

Argonne’s fuel spray modeling capabilities and advanced load-balancing algorithm technologies have given Cummins access to more reliable analytical calculations; the work has lowered Cummins' dependence on experimental engines and prototypes and has accelerated new engine concepts and design to market.
