Digital Prototyping a Mercedes

Jul 14, 2015 |

ISC 2015’s emphasis on HPC use in industry was reflected in the choice of Monday’s opening keynote speaker, Jürgen Kohler, senior manager, NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness) CAE & Vehicle Concepts, Mercedes-Benz Cars Development. Kohler presented a fascinating overview of the evolution of the auto industry’s use of HPC-based modeling and simulation. (Did you know Read more…

Altair Crash Tests New Xeon E7s

Mar 12, 2014 |

RADIOSS, one of the top structural analysis solvers in the industry, is used by auto companies like Ford and PSA in France to run car crash and other simulations to test safety and viability of a broad array of products. Like similar CAE codes, it is highly parallelized for top performance on large, powerful clusters–and Read more…

Crash Testing at Scale

Jan 14, 2014 |

Over on Cray’s blog site, the company’s manufacturing segment manager, Greg Clifford, writes about the performance of explicit structural applications at scale as a follow-up post to a blog on extreme scaling in CAE applications,” which shows such applications successfully scaling to over 10,000 cores. The new entry is concerned with the scaling performance of Read more…

Freeing CAE Jobs from Zombie Computing

Nov 14, 2013 |

Over at Desktop Engineering, Kenneth Wong has published “The Zombie Computer Survival Guide,” or “things to consider when shopping for HPC for simulation.” Wong writes that “sooner or later, advanced CAE software user will have to face the invasion of the zombie desktop computers.” This is the inevitable point when underpowered desktop computers forced to run Read more…

UberCloud HPC Experiment Readies for Round Three

Mar 5, 2013 |

<img src=”http://media2.hpcwire.com/hpccloud/abstract_globe.jpg” alt=”” width=”94″ height=”84″ />The UberCloud Experiment is issuing an open invitation to members of the HPC, CAE, life sciences, and big data communities to join round three. Teams will be involved in applying the cloud computing services model to compute and data-intensive workloads on remote cluster computing resources. The idea behind the experiment is to explore the end-to-end process of using remote computing resources as a service, and learning to tackle the many roadblocks.

Half-Time in the Uber-Cloud

Sep 20, 2012 |

<img style=”float: left;” src=”http://media2.hpcwire.com/hpcwire/Hyperscale_small.bmp” alt=”” width=”111″ height=”68″ />Since its inception on June 28, the Uber-Cloud Experiment has attracted over 160 industry and research organizations and individuals from 22 countries. They all have one goal: to jointly explore the end-to-end process of remotely accessing technical computing resources sitting in HPC centers and in the cloud. With Round One of the experiment wrapping up, the organizers have generously provided a “half-time” report of the project.
