Atos to empower automotive digital manufacturing processes with high-performance computing for AVL Listing

Atos at present broadcasts that it has been chosen by Austrian AVL Listing GmbH to ship a brand new high-performance computing cluster primarily based on BullSequana XH2000 servers together with a five-year upkeep service. Because the world’s main mobility expertise supplier for improvement, simulation and testing within the automotive business, the corporate will depend on Atos’ supercomputer to drive extra advanced and highly effective simulations, whereas optimizing its vitality consumption.

As a worldwide provider to the automotive business, AVL gives its prospects with extremely advanced pc simulations for the design, improvement and testing of powertrains, workpieces, drive items and huge engines. Each step of the best way, the processes are represented digitally and require excessive, dependable pc efficiency in addition to storage capability. The cluster is used for a variety of functions, from finite ingredient evaluation (FEA) for structural optimization and crash simulations to fluid mechanics simulations of combustion processes and battery cooling. Industrial software program packages of well-known producers in addition to AVL-Listing’s personal Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software program bundle FIRE are used for this process.

The brand new pc community carried out by Atos has greater than doubled the computational efficiency in engineering and subsequently the processing occasions of computational duties in buyer tasks may very well be decreased by greater than half. As well as, it’s attainable to supply a higher number of calculation outcomes with out having to entry exterior compute sources corresponding to cloud cases. This leads to fast and environment friendly variations of engineering workflows to new duties.

With this cluster, AVL additionally advantages from a extremely energy-efficient system, together with Atos’ Direct Liquid Cooling (DLC). This expertise has been developed to keep away from overheating. It consumes considerably much less electrical energy than standard cooling techniques whereas guaranteeing nearly noiseless, significantly secure operation.

“AVL’s ardour is innovation and Atos’ supercomputer meets that requirement by way of efficiency and energy-efficiency. The Direct Liquid Cooling (DLC) expertise of the XH2000 cluster has opened up an unprecedented efficiency vary, with minimal vitality necessities and a inexperienced footprint, as a result of 95 per cent of the waste warmth is just not launched into the surroundings, however is put to additional use through the cooling water circuit,” defined Günter Bachler, Senior IT System Administrator, AVL Listing GmbH.

Stefan Kero, Head of Superior Computing, Central Japanese Europe, Atos, added: “Excessive-performance computer systems are among the many key applied sciences of our time and have change into indispensable in Sciences, Medical Analysis, Climate Forecast but in addition within the Business, particularly in digital product improvement. With HPC, industrial gamers can speed up the development of digital prototypes – which may be run by shortly and as typically as desired in a mess of variants – subsequently achieve flexibility and revolutionary power. We’re glad to be supporting AVL to simulate and check automotive applied sciences, for a safer mobility.”
