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: Quantum optical sensor for the first time tested in space – with a laser system from Berlin

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.

According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
