PRACE has released a set of seven whitepapers from their SHAPE pilot program. Designed to bolster use of HPC by small and medium-sized enterprises in Europe, the SHAPE pilot worked with a few selected SMEs and introduced HPC-based tools and techniques into their business.
“NCSA has worked with more than one-third of the Fortune50, in sectors including manufacturing, oil and gas, finance, retail/wholesale, bio/medical, life sciences, astronomy, agriculture, technology, and more. NCSA’s Private Sector Program currently boasts 26 partners. PSP’s core mission is to help its partner community gain a competitive edge through expert use of modern, high-performance digital and human resources.”
“Over the past two and half years, the team worked on a DOE-funded project, Computer-Aided Engineering for Electric Drive Vehicle Batteries (CAEBAT), to combine new and existing battery models into engineering simulation software to shorten design cycles and optimize batteries for increased performance, safety and lifespan. In order to achieve these goals the team has been modeling thermal management, electrochemistry, ion transport and fluid flow.”
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).”
Fred Streitz from Lawrence Livermore National Lab presented this talk at the Stanford HPC Conference. “The HPC Innovation Center bridges American industry’s growing need for advanced solution to complex challenges in research and development with LLNL’s forefront supercomputing and disruptive scientific capabilities.”
