Fraunhofer SCAI develops innovative methods in Computational Science and actively supports their take-up in industrial practice. The institute combines mathematical and computational knowledge with a focus on algorithms – bringing benefits to customers and partners.
Wind turbines, airplanes and artificial heart valves are examples for structures, whose development requires the solution of coupled fluid dynamics and structural mechanics problems, or – more generally – multidisciplinary problems. The MpCCI CouplingEnvironment provides a framework for the solution of multidisciplinary applications.
aims to gain a common understanding of and interoperable definitions for virtual material models in CAE. Using industrial use cases from major material domains and with representative manufacturing processes, new concepts will be created for a universal material exchange interface for virtual engineering workflows.
TREMOLO-X is a powerful software package used for the numerical simulation of interactions between atoms and molecules, the molecular dynamics. It provides the environment to design new innovative materials. TREMOLO-X is successfully applied in many projects in nanotechnology, material science, biochemistry and biophysics.
Fraunhofer SCAI has published its Annual Report 2018/2019. It describes the research in the ten business areas of the institute. It also provides an overview of the institute's numerous software solutions that are used in industrial practice.
New analysis methods facilitate the evaluation of complex engineering data
A further increase in the performance of supercomputers is expected over the next few years. So-called exascale computers will be able to deliver more precise simulations. This leads to considerably more data. Fraunhofer SCAI develops efficient data analysis methods for this purpose, which provide the engineer with detailed insights into the complex technical contexts.
