Altair CAE platform improves productivity and customer satisfaction in the Gas Turbine Sector
TROY, Mich., Jan. 20 -- Altair Engineering, Inc., a leading global provider of technology and services that empowers client innovation and decision-making, announced today that the UK Gas Turbine Division of Assystem, a leading engineering services and consultancy provider, has selected Altair HyperWorks to be included in future engineering service projects. Assystem will use HyperWorks and especially HyperMesh, the advanced finite element analysis (FEA) meshing solution of the product suite, to compliment existing analysis software in order to support service and consultancy projects within the gas turbine industry. Since the recent acquisition of HyperMesh, Assystem has already realised benefits including substantial improvements in mesh generation leading to better results for their customers.
"I have had the chance to work with many different meshing tools during my professional career," said Phil Baker, projects & analysis manager at Assystem. "I have to say, that none of them have shown the robustness and flexibility that HyperMesh has demonstrated. We are continually looking to improve our service offering and a key factor in this process is the selection of proven analysis tools. HyperMesh has a very good reputation in the industry, so we trained our engineers at Altair and then evaluated HyperMesh on some of our projects. HyperMesh is very robust, offers flexible geometry manipulation, is 64-bit compatible and has an open platform to be used with any solver our customers request us to work with. It offers us the flexibility, reliability and efficiencies we need to meet our customers' requirements and stay ahead of our competitors."
"We are working in a very competitive industry in which timescales are critical, HyperMesh is giving us the competitive business edge we need," added Kaushil Solanki, senior engineer at Assystem UK.
"We are very pleased to see Assystem implementing HyperMesh into their development processes," said Maurice Linscott, regional director of Altair Engineering, UK. "Our tools offer service companies the flexibility they need because they provide an open architecture, offer quick return times and a good return on investment. I expect to see more and more service and consultancy companies in the UK turning to HyperWorks thanks to the business benefits the product suite offers."
Built on a foundation of design optimization, performance data management and process automation, HyperWorks is an enterprise simulation solution for rapid design exploration and decision-making. As the most comprehensive, open-architecture CAE solution in the industry, HyperWorks includes best-in-class modeling, analysis, visualization and data management solutions for linear and non-linear, structural optimization, fluid-structure interaction, and multi-body dynamics applications.
Assystem is an Engineering Services and Consultancy company that is dedicated to providing solutions for a broad range of industrial sectors including gas turbines, aerostructures, automotive, nuclear power, marine energy and rail.

In quieter times, sounding the bell of funding big science with big systems tends to resonate further than when ears are already burning with sour economic and national security news. For exascale's future, however, the time could be ripe to instill some sense of urgency....
In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

The study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

At some point in the not-too-distant future, building powerful, miniature computing systems will be considered a hobby for high schoolers, just as robotics or even Lego-building are today. That could be made possible through recent advancements made with the Raspberry Pi computers.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
