From the first nut nad bolt to the bigest ship or bridge. Computer analysis aids engineer so speed up their design workflow and improve components and final products.


The use of HPC simulations and modelling in manufacturing has aided engineers and designers in prototyping, product design and analysis and product optimization and led to a reduction of reliance on physical tests. Furthermore, it has led the development and production of new and innovative products with more durable and reliable materials while using less energy and generating less waste. Composite materials are beneficial because, as they are made from different materials, they can extract the positive benefits from each of their components materials. Numerous products ranging from aircraft, infrastructure, to golf clubs use composite materials due to their sturdiness, lightweight and relatively low cost. The safety and reliability of composite materials depends on their composite constituents, the configuration and application of which depends on system design which can be modelled and analysed on HPCs.

Finite element analysis (FEA) is used in structural simulation to visualize a structure’s stiffness and strength, as well as to minimize weight, materials and costs. It is a powerful design tools which has provided insight into critical design parameters, increase accuracy and reliance on virtual prototyping while reducing hardware prototypes, raised productivity and helped reduce the time necessary to move a product from concept to production. With modern computing power, researchers can use computational chemistry and materials (CCM) to perform simulations of very complex molecular systems to develop reliable predictions of the structures and properties of molecules and solids, electronic properties and reactivity.
