Free Webinar: An Initial Look at Updating Engineering Models to the Modern Era

Join us Wednesday, October 20, 2021, at 12:00 p.m.–1:00 p.m. (U.S. Central Time)

Hosts: Jarred Deeley

This presentation takes a look at the concern of aging engineering models that still use Fortran 90 or older. It briefly covers the issues of maintaining old Fortran 90 models and why it may be a good idea to update to modern Fortran or a different language. A toy benchmark compares a selection of languages to show what languages could replace Fortran. The presentation makes the argument that old Fortran 90 models should be updated to a modern language such as Rust.
