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.Further Information:

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
