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: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
