HPCWire: Revolutionizing Innovation: When HPC Meets Cloud

Looking for answers to your questions about cloud-based HPC?

  • When does cloud based HPC deliver results?
  • What is required to be successful with it?
  • Where can you go to get started quickly?

Attend the HPCWire webinar “Revolutionizing Innovation: When HPC Meets Cloud” sponsored by Dell.

 

Where innovation in engineering and product development is the key to marketplace success, high performance computing is the key to accelerated innovation.  Cost-effectively leveraging limited resources is a challenge for which on-demand HPC in the cloud can be an effective tool when the engineering tools and workflow are designed for it.

 

Intelligent Light’s own Steve Legensky joins Intersect 360′s Addison Snell and Larry Smarr of Calit2 in this webinar hosted by HPCWire’s Nicole Hemsoth. Mr. Legensky uses real world examples to show the motivation, success criteria, methods, and results that make on-demand HPC a compelling investment for small and large organizations alike.

“Yves-Marie Lefebvre, FieldView
Product Chief, with members of the Concordia SAE Racing Team, at the SAE 2014 World
Congress.

I was pleased to meet with the Concordia University Team at the the SAE World Congress in Detroit.  This photos was taken a the event (I’m on the right) with the newly unveiled vehicle and team members.

IL sponsors the team through our University Partners Program and the team uses FieldView to gain meaningful insights from their CFD analysis.

Good luck to the Concordia SAE Supermileage Team!

F1 Ushers in New Era for 2014 with Extensive Rule & Design Changes

Three of last year’s top four F1 teams use FieldView to rapidly exploit mountains of CFD data to support critical design decisions from thermal and aerodynamic studies.

 

With the first races of the new season now in the books, it is clear that the sport’s most dramatic single season rule changes will have a huge impact on the racing this season.

 

For the Infiniti Red Bull Formula 1 team, the new RB10 will carry the hopes of Infiniti Red Bull Racing as they take on the new season and all the new rule changes for 2014.  Four-time Formula 1 Champion Sebastian Vettel will pilot the RB10 as will his new teammate, Daniel Ricciardo.  The Bulls will have to shore up the reliability of the new cars and dial in fuel consumption before the next race, but new driver Daniel Ricciardo has already proven he has the skills to compete.

Transient Post-Processing for a Full Car Thermal Validation Study

An Innovative Transient Post-Processing Approach for a Full Car Thermal Validation Study

Full car CFD simulation using STAR-CCM+ solutions. FieldView post-processing enables large scale transient cases to be productively analyzed.  To be presented at the 2014 STAR Global Conference.

Full car CFD simulation using STAR-CCM+ solutions. FieldView post-processing enables large scale transient cases to be productively analyzed. To be presented at the 2014 STAR Global Conference.

STAR-CCM+ and FieldView have been used, through an extract based post-processing workflow, to analyze a very large transient simulation case. This method not only allowed monitoring of simulation results over time, such as the maximum temperature of thousands of car parts and their comparison with the critical temperature of each material, but also allowed investigation of transient phenomena interactively in order to gain better understanding. To our knowledge, this work is unprecedented in the automotive industry.

Intelligent Light is proud of our partnership with CD-adapco. At the 2014 STAR Global Conference,  Yves-Marie Lefebvre, FieldView Product Chief, shared leading edge techniques and capabilities developed from our work with CD-adapco and leaders in automotive engineering.  The presentation demonstrated just how much CFD data can be efficiently created and utilized, compressing analysis cycles and delivering value from large scale, unsteady STAR-CCM+ simulations.
