Computational Simulation Laboratory
The Biomedical Engineering Computational Simulation Facility is a high-performance computing laboratory locarted at 24 Cummington Street, basement rooms B03 and B04, with a smaller laboratory located at 48 Cummington Street, basement room B11. The facility consists of high-performance Linux workstations at each seat and rackmounted computational nodes in a separate server room. It is available for classroom instruction, homework and research requiring high computational power, and all machines are clustered together as part of a parallel computing grid for remote access to regular scientific applications and for processing long, computationally intensive jobs.
The Biomedical Engineering Data-Acquisition Laboratory is a biomedical instrumentation facility located at 48 Cummington Street, rooms 209 and 211. These Windows workstations are equipped with data acquisition cards connected to signal measurement and analysis instrumentation, and are available for classroom instruction, homework, and research involving data capture and recording.
Managers of both facilities work closely with the Scientific Computing and Visualization Group, the Office of Information Technology, Network Systems Engineering Group, and College of Engineering Information Technology to provide custom computing solutions for instruction and research both within BME and across departments.
