Taking into account that the progress will depend, in most cases on the possibility to achieve larger (or faster) simulations, it results that the computer simulation is essential for the scientific discovery, the approach of the society's challenges but also for the competitiveness of industry, thus, resulting that the general tendency in HPC is represented by the multiscale and multiphysical simulations, this can be achieved with the help of the larger supercomputers (which have a higher computing power, larger memory, a better storage, visualisation, etc), the simulation codes and instruments having the possibility to benefit of such systems, but also with the help of specialists in HPC, numeric analysis and in the practical phenomenon of their simulation working together.
