Outcome: 50% reduction in time required to carry out crash simulations
The Hartree Centre’s on-demand high performance computing (HPC) service enCORE, managed by OCF, enabled vehicle impact specialists Simpact Engineering to enhance its capacity to compete and thrive in the global market.
Using the service meant Simpact could quickly and cost-effectively upscale its in-house computing hardware and secure results from highly complex crash simulation models to a challenging deadline.
Through access to the Hartree Centre’s IBM Blue Wonder cluster, model runtime was reduced by more than half, underlining how intense computing can significantly accelerate the design and innovation cycle.
