Faster Design Turns With Crash & Impact Simulation Runs

For manufacturers, high-fidelity crash/safety and impact simulations using explicit structural analysis applications are growing rapidly in size and complexity. To meet marketplace demands for more efficient, safer and higher-performing designs, leading companies must run larger, more complex models in shorter time frames.

Read more (open/close details)

The increasing scale and performance requirements of these simulations can rapidly outstrip manufacturers' existing compute capabilities. Using commodity clusters for very large and complex simulations can quickly lead to a point of diminished, or even reduced, returns — where adding additional nodes may actually adversely impact overall performance. These performance limitations can result in manufacturers having to make trade-offs like running lower-resolution models or fewer design iterations. This is especially problematic with today's automotive and aerospace manufacturers, which must run increasingly larger models, pushing them toward petascale compute performance.

The Solution: The Cray® XC™ Supercomputer — Crash- and Impact-Ready

The crash- and impact-ready Cray® XC™ solution puts the powerful and proven XC platform into configurations optimized for CAE simulation. Developed in collaboration with leading explicit structural analysis vendors and validated and performance tested on actual customer models, these configurations of the Cray XC series of supercomputers deliver reliable performance for manufacturers' crash and impact simulations.

From its processors to its I/O and storage interfaces, every component of the Cray crash and safety solution was designed to deliver faster design turns. The system delivers results in hours instead of days, on runs incorporating highly complex physics and analysis methods such as detailed tire models, stochastic simulation and the longer simulation times required for rollover analysis.

Another Alternative: Cray Cluster Supercomputers

Understanding that some manufacturers need nimble, reliable and cost-effective cluster systems, we developed the Cray® CS™ cluster supercomputer series. The Cray CS cluster supercomputer series is standards-based, highly customizable and designed to handle the broadest range of medium- to large-scale crash and safety simulation workloads.

Breakthrough CFD Performance at Full Scale

Automotive and aerospace manufacturers require increased accuracy for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models, but they can't risk running behind schedule. The increasing scale and performance requirements of CFD simulations can rapidly outstrip manufacturers' existing compute capabilities. Such performance limitations can result in manufacturers having to make trade-offs like running lower-resolution CFD simulations, not including the full geometry or having fewer design iterations.

Furthermore, Cray works directly with simulation software vendors to optimize simulation performance to better leverage Cray's advanced performance capabilities, like Aries™ interconnects and the DataWarp™ I/O accelerator. As a result, engineers can now conduct full CFD simulations successfully and still stay well within their system development schedule.

Accelerating and Improving Implicit Structural Analysis

Today's automotive and aerospace manufacturers are increasingly relying on structural analysis applications to improve the reliability, efficiency and performance of the vehicles they manufacture. The increasing scale and performance requirements of modern implicit structural analysis applications present unique challenges.

Read more (open/close details)

Unlike CFD and explicit structural applications, most implicit structural simulations do not scale to hundreds of cores. This means that throwing more nodes at a problem often won't help, so efficiency and I/O performance are critical. Hence a system configured for implicit structural analysis will typically have larger memory and often include SSD technology.

The Solution: Breakthrough Supercomputers for Full-Scale Structural Analysis, on Schedule

Cray® XC™ supercomputers are capable of handling some of the world's largest simulations. And Cray works with structural analysis software vendors to optimize simulation performance and better leverage the advanced performance capabilities in the XC series, such as Aries™ interconnects and the DataWarp™ I/O accelerator. As a result, engineers can now conduct higher-fidelity simulations and still stay well within their system development schedule.

One important XC system capability that's significant for structural analysis applications is Cray's DataWarp technology. The DataWarp applications I/O accelerator leverages features of the Cray Linux® environment, solid-state disk (SSD) storage and the Cray high-speed network to enable high-performance I/O at every node in the system without the need for SSDs on every node.

Cray Cluster Supercomputers

Understanding that some manufacturers need nimble, reliable and cost-effective cluster systems, we developed the Cray® CS™ cluster supercomputer series. Cray CS cluster supercomputers are standards-based, highly customizable and designed to handle the broadest range of medium- to large-scale structural analysis workloads.

Proof: Improved I/O Performance for NVH

To test the DataWarp accelerator's capability, a team from MSC Software and Cray conducted a large MSC Nastran noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) simulation of an automotive floor pan on a Cray XC supercomputer. They ran the simulation twice, first using only the spinning disk in a high-performance Lustre® file system for I/O and then using the DataWarp accelerator feature on the XC system. The use of the DataWarp technology significantly reduced I/O time, finishing the simulation in half the elapsed time.

Breakthrough Electromechanical Simulation Performance

Electromechanical and electromagnetic simulations are promising for a wide range of applications for automotive and aerospace manufacturers. However, incorporating them into design workflows can put a schedule at risk, since these simulations often rapidly outstrip manufacturers' existing compute capabilities.

Read more (open/close details)

Using commodity clusters for very large and complex electromechanical and electromagnetic models can quickly lead to a point of diminished, or even reduced, returns - where adding additional nodes may actually adversely impact overall performance. The impact of such performance limitations can result in manufacturers either running simulations against fewer electronic components or running fewer iterations on the components they do simulate. In other words, though electromechanical and electromagnetic simulations are promising, their adoption is dampened by a lack of sufficient compute infrastructure to run them.

The Solution: Uncompromising Supercomputers for Full-Scale Electro-Simulation, on Schedule

    Cray® XC™ supercomputers are capable of handling some of the world's largest simulations, scaling up to tens of thousands of nodes, while providing near-linear scalability. And Cray works directly with simulation software vendors to optimize simulation performance to better leverage Cray advanced performance capabilities in the XC series, like Aries™ interconnects and the DataWarp applications accelerator. As a result, engineers can conduct full electromechanical and electromagnetic simulations successfully and still stay well within their system development schedule.

Manufacturing and Cybercrime

As digitalization increasingly becomes a part of product lifecycles, and the internet of things (IoT) places data in a skyrocketing number of connected places, it is not surprising that manufacturers have seen an increase in cybercrime.

Read more (open/close details)

To combat the increase in IP theft, product sabotage, counterfeiting and other data crimes, manufacturers need powerful analytics solutions that are fast and easy to implement. Cray's Urika®-GX platform provides the speed and power required to help manufacturers protect their valuable product intelligence.

Cybercrime Challenges in Manufacturing

  • Systems designed to control, supervise and automate production operations rely more and more on networked data, creating a target for cybercriminals.
  • Since control systems are increasingly interconnected and can be monitored remotely, and legitimate traffic to these systems is heavy, malicious activity can be hard to detect.
  • Manufacturers are often unaware a theft has taken place until it discovers its compromised IP in a product on the open market.

Safeguarding Intellectual Property

  • Uncover anomalies to detect threats faster – Cray's powerful Urika-GX platform enables healthcare and life sciences organizations to draw conclusions faster about likely threats.
  • Improve responsiveness and agility – The Urika-GX system fuses real-time analytics with powerful graph capabilities, bringing previously hidden connections to light.
  • Gain a powerful analytics supercomputer – The Urika-GX platform offers unmatched performance at scale to support analytics problems of all kinds, so manufacturers have a system for all their big data analysis challenges.
