TFYA99 is an undergraduate project course given for, primarily, civil engineering program students at the very end of their education. It offers a computational project run for 1-2 small student groups. The course runs all of HT2022 (which includes some time into January). The students doing the computational project in this course develop a molecular dynamics code and run it on a fairly large data set. Last year the students performed these runs on Sigma using allocation LiU-compute-2021-20. This year we have 1 project group with 8 students. Total resource usage is quite limited, but depends on the number of students and their skills. Last year we only used 7.4% of the allocation of 1 kcore-h/month, total of 5 kcore-h. However, it seems likely more computational time will be used up this year. Since the course is already ongoing, it would be convenient if the project can start as soon as possible already in September, but at least October 1 if possible? (I apologize for the short notice). I suggest a quota of 1000 core-h/month for Oct 2022 - Jan 2023 but would also be ok with stricter limits if necessary.
