$17 million grant supports predictive science and supernovae research

AOSS Professor Paul Drake will be director of the new Center for Radiative Shock Hydrodynamics, which is funded primarily by a $17-million, five-year cooperative agreement from the National Nuclear Security Administration’s (NNSA) Office of Advanced Simulation and Computing. The grant will also fund a doctoral program for predictive science and engineering at U-M.

 

“The research at this Center has the potential to contribute to solving major problems facing humanity,” said David Munson, the Robert J. Vlasic Dean of Engineering. “The work there will improve scientists’ abilities to understand and model the world and the universe around us.”
