Abstract

The paper begins with a background of the problem, a description of the research projects requiring use of HPC, followed by the problems with accessing the HPC resources required, and an account of the approach taken to solve the problem. A description of the solutions is provided, followed by a discussion on the research outcomes and a reflection on lessons learnt.
