Today Rescale announced that it has become a full member of the Automotive Simulation Center Stuttgart, or asc(s. The asc(s is a non-profit organization promoting high-performance simulation in virtual vehicle development. It consists of automotive OEMs and suppliers, software and hardware manufacturers, engineering service providers, and research institutes.

Rescale is delighted to be accepted as a member of asc(s,” said Wolfgang Dreyer, Rescale’s EMEA General Manager. “asc(s provides a forum for simulation innovation across the European automotive sector and Rescale is enabling scalable, turnkey on-demand high-performance computing, all pivotal for making automotive simulation cost-effective, fast, and efficient. We look forward to working with the members of the association to better understand industry requirements and trends and to push the boundaries of automotive simulation.”

The vehicle design-to-manufacturing process is becoming increasingly simulation driven, but the sheer number of components and systems in a modern car makes multi-disciplinary design for crashworthiness, NVH, durability, fatigue, thermodynamics, electromagnetics, and fluid flow extremely challenging. Fortunately, simulation software and high-performance hardware have both made huge gains in capability over recent years and it’s now possible to simulate complex multi-physics system problems and even run large design of experiments (DOEs) and optimizations on scalable cloud data center hardware. Many IT departments with on-premise capacity are struggling to support cutting-edge applications such as deep learning for autonomous driving and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) simulation, making cloud or hybrid-cloud simulation highly attractive.

Rescale offers a turnkey “big compute” solution for the automotive industry to exploit the best available software and hardware. Rescale works with a number of automotive customers including Honda, Nissan, Toyota, America Axle, Pinnacle Engines, Magna, and Siemens. Through its partners, Rescale has over 200 pre-installed software tools and over 60 worldwide data centers on tap. Applications include airflow over the vehicle, multibody impact, combustion effectiveness, oil flow, electromagnetic compatibility, and deep learning for autonomous driving.
