HPC Centers Propel Industry Forward with CAE Simulation


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).”

Seac02 Brings Augmented Reality to Altair Alliance


Seac02, the developer of the real-time rendering and augmented reality software LinceoVR, has joined the Altair Partner Alliance (APA). As the APA’s first rendering tool, LinceoVR expands the program’s simulation offering.

High Performance Computing Innovation Center at LLNL


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.”

BMW Optimizes Engine Cooling with ModeFrontier

The Diesel Engine Development Department at BMW used Esteco’s ModeFrontier software to optimise the transient cooling system of one of its six-cylinder, 225kW diesel engines and to support the validation steps for the newly updated thermal model. ModeFrontier helped the BMW team create a reliable transient cooling system model, compliant with new testing guidelines. The […]

Ansys has announced plans to acquire Reaction Design, which develops chemistry simulation software.

HPC Wales Recognized for Open Data Excellence

HPC Wales was recognized for Open Data excellence at the recent Next Generation Digital Challenge Awards ceremony in Wembley. HPC Wales continues to be one of the most successful organizations out there for bringing high performance computing to the Missing Middle.

Changing Times – Dealing with Evolving HPC Workloads


With a broader user community making use of HPC computing, there are significant changes in the work mix of jobs being processed by HPC systems. A move away from large parallel applications toward a wider variety of smaller and shorter running applications put new and different strains on both PBS and the system overall. To address these workloads, we have begun to deploy new strategies, including a hook to limit job initiation rates, as well as working with our users to address their needs to run thousands or millions of independent cases.
