Engineer Ron Kulak of Argonne National Laboratory's Transportation Research and Analysis Computing Center stands in front of a visualization of water flowing around bridge supports. The redder colors represent faster flow rates. High-performance computing provides engineers with the ability to visualize the flow in unique detail. Read the full story.
One of the last U Boats to be sunk by allied aircraft, two days before the official end of the war with Germany.
