Engineering is the creative application of physical and mathematical sciences to analyze, design, manufacture and utilize products which benefit people.
Engineering Modeling and Simulation is the solution of practical engineering analysis and design problems using physics-based computational models and supercomputer simulations. At LLNL, work in computational engineering is performed by people with backgrounds in engineering, physics, applied mathematics, and computer science. LLNL engineers develop mathematical models of physical systems, create large-scale simulation codes, and use supercomputers to perform high fidelity simulations. Engineering Modeling and Simulation plays a significant role in the Laboratory's major programs in weapons, lasers, energy, and security. In addition, numerous personnel are engaged in smaller scale, entrepreneurial R&D projects in collaboration with universities and industry.
