Making significant gains in vehicle efficiencies involves understanding extremely complex interactions among the engine, battery, power electronics, materials, aerodynamics, and controls. Computational science is a growing field with the capacity to handle the exponential increase in the vehicle calibration space and simulate real-world scenarios. In his talk, Dr. Pannala will detail computational efforts related to transportation and lay down a roadmap for using high performance computing to accelerate the design of highly efficient and cost-effective vehicles that meet regulatory, safety, and consumer demands.
Dr. Pannala is a Distinguished Member of the R&D Staff in the Computer Science and Mathematics Division at ORNL and a joint faculty with the Bredesen Center for Interdisciplinary Research and Graduate Education at the University of Tennessee. He received his B.Tech (with honors) in aerospace engineering from Indian Institute of Technology and MS and PhD in aerospace engineering from Georgia Tech.
