In the ISC opening keynote, the conference was told that Europe is failing to persuade enough small and medium companies to take advantage of high performance computing and engineering simulation, even though HPC and CAE are essential tools in modern industry.
The Fastway Store on the UberCloud Marketplace is designed to provide exclusive training classes specifically designed to teach participants how to use the latest Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) software on the cloud for Designers and Design Engineers. “Never before has a more complete curriculum been created to bring newcomers into the world of Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) and High Performance Computing.” says Fastway Engineering’s managing director, Jim Shaw.
“Whereas previous generations of engineers could take some comfort in the ‘safety net’ of extensive physical testing to rescue them from the occasional poor prediction, CAE is increasingly the victim of its own success as simulation continues to displace hardware testing as industry’s verification method of choice. Although this increased confidence in simulation is well-deserved (and has been hard-earned through many years of successful prediction), it brings with it a great deal of pressure to ‘get the answer right’ every time.”
HPC Centers play a critical role in providing resources and expertise to improve the effectiveness of CAE simulation for manufacturing companies. “The HPC team at NCSA is able to leverage the compute power of Blue Waters, ISV relationships and the industrial partnerships to enable new levels of performance in CAE simulation (again, it’s a team effort).”
