Michel Pottiez | Innovation in cloud-HPC powered simulation: CloudFlow

After completing the initial year, I4MS has hosted its first public international event on 18th June in Berlin, in cooperation with the launch of the German manufacturing programme, “Autonomik für Industrie 4.0". I4MS has brought together more than 150 professionals from industry and innovation, who have attended to several presentations about what has been achieved by I4MS and further funding opportunities for SMEs and middle size corporates (mid-caps) under the Initiative.
The event signified the importance of SMEs in Europe’s manufacturing industry and their role in the reindustrialisation process for Europe. At a glance: SMEs are providers of around 45% of manufacturing added value and roughly 59% of employment in the manufacturing sector.

  1. 1. Fostering Digital Industrial Innovation in Europe BERLIN 17th & 18th of June 2014
  2. 2. Outline 1. CloudFlow – CFD experiment 2. Industrial relevance 3. Improvement of Industrial Process 4. Cost Benefits
  3. 3. CloudFlow is a computing infrastructure enabling engineers to 1. The CloudFlow project CFD experiment Complex products require … • development and simulation of mechanics, software and electronics all together • interactive simulation, simulation-in-the-loop and synchronized workflows based on interoperability of data, services and workflows CloudFlow is a computing infrastructure enabling engineers to access services on the Cloud in domains such as • CAD, CAM • CAE (CFD), • Systems and PLM and to combines them to integrated workflows, leveraging HPC resources. It is largely based on open standard for data exchange and cloud infrastructure I4MS: FOSTERING DIGITAL INDUSTRIAL INNOVATION IN EUROPE In this context, a CFD experiment is conducted that uses all the ingredients of the CloudFlow platform.
  4. 4. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is playing an essential role in the development of innovative products in many sectors of the industry, such as automotive, aeronautics, power generation, marine, architecture, …. as a mean to analyze the flow behavior and optimize HPC CFD on the Cloud addresses different ranges of users: • Large industries, who seek the opportunity to intensify the use of virtual prototyping and CFD in their design process, in an effort to reduce costly 2. Industrial relevance CFD experiment as a mean to analyze the flow behavior and optimize important factors such as engine performance, aerodynamics performance (car, airplane), power generation efficiency , and much more. CFD is a large player in the HPC landscape as it is largely demanding in computing power. Offering access to scalable computing facilities through the Cloud is the aim of the experiment. their design process, in an effort to reduce costly wind tunnel tests • SME who seek flexible solutions that allow them to easily access CFD technologies at affordable costs, without requiring large investment in hardware facilities and maintenance.

  5. 5. Using CFD to the Cloud can lead to several competitive advantages for companies who seek to improve their design. By accessing scalable computing power on demand, companies can intensify the use of CFD during critical product 3. Improvement of industrial process CFD experiment It also allows for automated design optmization, which allow to explore many design alternatives and to find their optimum in an automated way, which require many CFD computation to run. intensify the use of CFD during critical product conception phases involving peak loads, but also run larger simulations, which allow to include more geometrical details and physics (i.e advanced turbulence modeling) into their simulations, therefore allowing to get more accurate and reliable results, needed in critical design decision phases, that would not be possible with traditional approaches.

  6. 6. Using CFD on the cloud can further offer significant savings: • Savings on hardware installation: CFD required customized hardware facilities which are costly to install and maintain, requiring high level system Cloud solutions dramatically simplify the access and evaluation process of CFD solutions, avoiding painful installation and configuration of software, dedicated hardware configurations and license management. This results in a much better experience of non- 4. Costs Benefits CFD experiment install and maintain, requiring high level system administration. • Cloud solutions offer flexible licensing possibilities, such as pay per use, which for SME, can represent large cost saving, when occasional use is made of virtual prototyping to validate a model design. This results in a much better experience of non- expert CFD users which therefore largely increases the chances of software adoption by the SME community.
