Researchers at University of Witwatersrand Have Reported New Data on Chemical Engineering [A parallel Attainable Region construction method suitable for implementation on a graphics processing unit (GPU)]

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Engineering -- Investigators publish new report on Chemical Engineering. According to news originating from Johannesburg, South Africa, by VerticalNews editors, the research stated, "A method for computing candidate Attainable Regions (ARs) suitable for implementation on a graphics processing unit (GPU) is discussed. This allows for both fast computation and complex candidate Attainable Regions to be considered."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the University of Witwatersrand, "The method is tested on several problems of varying dimension with kinetics that contain multiple steady-states and temperature dependent kinetics. The computation of unbounded regions is also studied. The constructions obtained appear to approximate the AR boundary well and exhibit good convergence in a small number of iteration steps."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "A brief analysis of the convergence characteristics of the method is also provided and compared to the same algorithm implemented on a conventional multicore central processing unit (CPU)."
