Tech-X Corporation has accessed the high performance computing HPC) facilities at the Science and Technology Facilities Council’s (STFC) Hartree Centre to accurately simulate particle beams of a novel next generation accelerator prototype.
Advanced simulation and visualisation facilities at the Hartree Centre, accessed through the Virtual Engineering Centre (VEC), have enabled Bentley to design virtual next-generation models of its iconic luxury cars, reducing the need for expensive, time-consuming physical prototyping.
Cutting-edge capabilities from the Virtual Engineering Centre (VEC), underpinned by the Hartree Centre's high performance computing facilities, helped Jaguar Land Rover optimise its vehicle design and development process.
Technology developed to advance STFC-funded research in particle physics and has underpinned the development of MRI scanners; a £111m industry that saves lives and improves.
Knowledge from STFC’s Central Laser Facility (CLF) was used to develop laser techniques for eye surgery; an industry which generates £400 million per year for the UK.
STFC’s Harwell Imaging Partnership (HIP) has aided Rolls-Royce in evaluating the benefits of fillet rolling on stress in aircraft engine components, by enabling access to STFC’s ISIS neutron and muon facility, as well as to new data analysis software created by STFC’s Scientific Computing Department.
Rapiscan Systems have teamed up with University College London (UCL) to use STFC’s VELA (Versatile Electron Linear Accelerator) for innovative testing to develop new technologies for future products.
SMEs like Oxsensis are supporting the UK’s £128 billion domestic low carbon sector, driving job creation and export growth
The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) extensively engages with the engineering industry, enabling UK companies to realise new manufacturing opportunities in high-value markets, such as SRF accelerator technology.
