Automotiv Simulation Center Stuttgart (ASCS) founded

17.03.2008
A groundbreaking and innovative public-private partnership aimed at advancing the automobile industry through high-performance computing (HPC) called Automotive Simulation Center Stuttgart was founded at the University Stuttgart.

Composed of software designers, scientists and researchers and top automobile manufacturers, ASCS will combine the expertise of key scientists and industry representatives with leading-edge supercomputing technologies to conduct research aimed at developing quiet, low pollution vehicles; creating products for the market that reduce fuel consumption, lower CO2 emissions and enhance safety; increasing cost efficiency and speeding time to market with new products.

The founder members of the ASCE are the University of Stuttgart in Germany, the Research Institute of Automotive Engineering and Vehicle Engines Stuttgart (FKFS), the automobile manufacturers Porsche, Daimler and Opel , the expert for supercomputing Cray, the software vendors Abaqus, Altair Engineering, DYNAmore, Engineous Software, Intes, the Virtual dimension Center Fellbach and the full-service-vehicle-supplier Karmann. Further companies also the University of Karlsruhe announced their membership to ASCS.

"The University of Stuttgart brings expertise from several sides: among to the high-performance computing center (HLRS) also the new cluster of excellence for simulation technology (SimTech) is involved," says Wolfram Ressel. "The experts, who works for the cluster of excellence will help to integrate still isolated numerical approaches in the development of advanced simulation technologies," he adds.

ASCS is bringing together industry experts and top scientists with the aim of developing products and energy-efficient technologies as well as enhancing product development and optimization practices for the automobile industry throughout the world. We are thrilled to be part of this project and look forward to seeing and benefiting from the innovations that result.

The initial funding for the project was provided by the Ministry of Science of the federal state of Baden-Wuerttemberg and the University of Stuttgart. The ultimate goal is to establish ASCS as a non-profit organization to be funded through membership fees and third-party contributions.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
