I have had some problem with pre-registration. How can one verify pre-registration state? TIA.

Hi AJ,
You just have to click the follow button. You can confirm you are signed up by checking out your profile page (in your case: https://herox.com/heroes/aj-72995). If you see the High Performance Fast Computing Challenge there, then you are all good.

Thanks you the reply. The challenge was not listed in my profile and the Follow button wasn't visible on the dashboard - though after clicking the Following button in the upper right-portion of the dashboard the orange Follow button appeared. Thanks again and looking forward to participating!

Is there any way to take part if you are based in the United Kingdom?

Hello, I am a U.S. citizen and a recently accepted Pathways student with Johnson Space Center. However, I do not start until the fall and I am not yet a civil servant. Am I eligible, or would this still disqualify me? Thank you.

Hi Daniel,
You are a US citizen, and as long at you are 18, you should be all set as you are not yet a civil servant. Good luck competing!

Is it really for US citizens only ? : (

Great Mike! Start your application for FUN3D ASAP as it can take a little while!

Hi Marc,
Yes, you must be a US citizen to compete in this competition.

The doc's say not to use company accounts or hardware, this is for individuals only. Not many people have super computer clusters in there home. The FUN3D's manual "some serious hardware available to run on" is about as clear as mud.

TL;DR That being said, what is the minimal/recommenced hardware for this challenge?

Can I get access to the mathematical basis for the calculations? I want to see the methodologies. Conventional hydrodynamics uses an iterative matrix solution on the order of n-squared where optimized solutions are of the order n and take the geometry into account.

Too bad ! Greetings from France and Thank you for answering though!
Good luck to all !

The mathematical basis for the FUN3D software is described in the numerous publications listed here: https://fun3d.larc.nasa.gov/chapter-2.html

It's recommended that we begin the process for getting the software right away. And, my understanding is that this challenge is open to individuals. But, when I try to apply at https://software.nasa.gov/software/LAR-18968-1 , I can't complete my request unless I specify business info: biz addr, biz phone, etc. What am I missing?

Can international students who live in United States currently take part?

@Paul What exactly do we need to put for the business information when applying for the FUN3D software?
