HPC200 - Course Objectives Cluster computing is the technique of linking two or more computers into a network (usually through a local area network) in order to take advantage of the parallel processing power of those computers. In this course students will use OSCAR (Open Source Cluster Application Resource) software which offers high-performance super-computing power at a very affordable price. It enables virtually any person with minimal computer skills to transform several standard computers into a virtual super-computer. It merits a distinction of being one of the best open source HPC cluster that can be deployed easily using Linux powered PCs. The primary purpose of the cluster is to learn parallel computation and its applications e.g., number crunching in cryptography or research in genetic and medical engineering. On the enterprise business side, you use Linux clusters can be your company's best bet for handling storage, applications, high-volume transactions and more. Oscar Cluster is a HPC cluster initially consisting of 2 nodes but is easily scalable depending on the computing needs. In this training, students will learn how to plan setup and deploy OSCAR on Linux RHEL5. PREQ: Basic knowledge of Linux. (Fees Code: 1A)

ER01 - Description To-date, most of the research work undertaken in many countries involve continuing investigation, analysis and definition of the many complex thermal processes that can take place within a building structure, for the purpose of quantifying the parameters necessary to achieve an energy-efficient built-environment with better indoor “comfort” climate. The Aspen energy forum 1977, whose theme was "Solar Architecture”, emphasized passive solar design and its great contribution in the area of energy conservation in buildings.Hence, one of the physical designer's main tasks is to create an environment inside the building, which is appropriate for all the human activities likely to take place there. The occupants' biological, emotional and physical characteristics also come into play. It is, therefore, of great importance to consider the response of the user's physiological make-up in relation to the environmental conditions it is exposed to. The body as a self-regulating system prefers to relate harmoniously with the climatic conditions and the environment around it. To-date we done studies covering tropical and Mediterranean climates and looking forward to get funding to pursuer studies energy-climate and built environment architrave in Canada.
