Our industrial partner Airinnova AB (http://airinnova.se/) has recently been awarded 50,000 core hours for a Prace Preparatory Type A project on the Hawk system (https://www.hlrs.de/systems/hpe-apollo-hawk/) at HLRS, Germany.
Airinnova is focusing on providing advanced computational technology for cutting edge aircraft preliminary design, computational aerodynamics, and multi-disciplinary optimization. It is currently actively involved in European research projects, engineering training and software development for aerospace applications.
Within the proposed project Airinnova will focus on a very high altitude and long endurance solar-electronic aircraft, using the designed models by Conceptual Design Corporate (CRC), simulate the given models, and optimize to find out the best design regarding lift-to-drag ratio. The tasks mainly consist of:
- Automation process development: Test the automation process by starting from a conceptual aircraft design model from a Commercial Software RDS into a working mesh.
- Benchmark: performance analysis for the desired model using the proper transition model, compare the predictions with the experiments.
- Port: deploy and run on a PRACE Tier1 system and prepare for Tier-0 system.
ENCCS continues to work on the needs of its industrial partners by advising on code scalability and support to access HPC resources. Learn more here.
