Fraunhofer Institute for Algorithms and Scientific Computing SCAI
Advanced Stamping Simulation
The objective of IMAUF (Advanced Stamping Simulation) is to bring together innovations from the areas of sheet forming, computer-based simulation methods, plasma coating technology and surface modification, to test them in manufacturing industry and to convert them to qualification concepts.
Extensible Simulation Package for Research on Soft Matter
Computer simulations of chemical systems on the molecular level are a key to the fast development of matter. They require a lot of special know-how and development time. This problem is tackled by the Max Planck Society and the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft in a strategic partnership.
Co-operative Grid-Solutions for Industrial Applications
The objective of PartnerGrid is the development of a software platform specially tailored to the requirements of industrial users. It supports the collaboration between teams in a virtual environment, e.g. integrators, suppliers and service providers.
Business Experiments in Grid
BEinGRID fosters the take-up of Grid solutions in industry using 18 »Business Experiments«. Fraunhofer SCAI is engaged in two of them, enabling engineers in ship building and automotive supplier industries to access Grid resources easily in their daily work. Simulation and optimization facilities help them to improve the product design.
Ship Design and Simulation System
Partners from ship building industries and IT experts jointly develop the integrated ship design and simulation system SESIS. The focus is on the early design phase, where all important parameters of a new ship are fixed. SESIS supports the collaboration between ship yards and their suppliers and consultants.
Business Solutions for the Usage of Distributed IT Resources and Services
Due to the increasing networking of companies and the strongly growing area of electronic business, the importance of utilizing all kinds of electronic resources in industry grows steadily. The possibility to make unused computing power and available applications accessible to users of the whole organization independent of their actual location is one of the advantages which can be realized by grid technologies.

Simulation Environment for Aeroelastic Computations
The primary purpose of the TAURUS project is to develop and test a common European technology for simulating aeroelastic problems for non-linear flow. This challenging project will allow industry to explore fluid-structure problems as well as design verification problems by using the integration platform, i.e. the user environment, efficiently.
COSIWIT - Coupled Simulations in Science and Engineering
A lot of applications need coupled simulations to enable accurate predictions. In COSIWIT, such computations are made possible for problems from a broad range of engineering fields. For example, in a resonator the interaction of forces originating from the electric fields and the deformation of the structure shall be predicted.
The planning of process engineering plants can be simplified significantly if the design engineer has the possibility to use modern dynamic flow and stress computations for piping systems. In this way, design, economic optimisation and safety considerations can be carried out in one step.
