CEESD – The Center for Exascale-enabled Scramjet Design

Air-breathing high-speed propulsion in the form of a scramjet—a supersonic combustion ramjet—promises to revolutionize global transport and access to space. The Center for Exascale-enabled Scramjet Design (CEESD) will develop physics-faithful predictive simulations enabled by advanced computer science methods to leverage massive-scale computational resources, in order to advance scramjet designs that leverage advanced high-temperature composite materials.

CEESD is an interdisciplinary center pulling from faculty experts in the Grainger College of Engineering and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications. The center is supported by the Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration, Advanced Simulation and Computing, Predictive Science Academic Alliance Program III.
