Ceetron and Fraunhofer SCAI sign contract

28.01.2009
Ceetron and the Fraunhofer Institute for Algorithms and Scientific Computing SCAI today announce the signature of a software agreement between the organizations.

The contract gives Fraunhofer SCAI access to use all of Ceetrons software tools for 3D visualization with new versions of CAE software from Fraunhofer SCAI.

As part of the agreement, Ceetron GmbH will develop a new on-line visualization component (MpCCI Visualizer) for the application MpCCI. MpCCI is the leading and open interface to couple different simulation codes for multi-disciplinary applications (www.mpcci.de).

The first software release from Fraunhofer SCAI that includes Ceetron technology will be MpCCI 3.1 - scheduled for release in January 2009. The MpCCI Visualizer that will be part of this release is currently under development by Ceetron GmbH on specifications from Fraunhofer SCAI. An important part of the development project is to include features for online monitoring of coupled analyses - for this part of the project, software developers from Fraunhofer SCAI and Ceetron GmbH will be cooperating closely.

Klaus Wolf, head of the Multiphysics-Application group at SCAI, says: "The cooperation with Ceetron provides Fraunhofer SCAI with an enhanced visualization tool. By integrating this customized tool into the MpCCI environment Fraunhofer SCAI can invest more effort into the core development of MpCCI itself. Fraunhofer SCAI will also use the GLview API to develop new pre- and post-processing software. These tools will offer advanced solutions for multi-physics data mapping, optimization in manufacturing process chains, and sensitivity analysis of input/output correlations in CAE."

"I am very satisfied and proud that we have reached an agreement with Fraunhofer SCAI, and I am convinced that the Ceetron technology will enable Fraunhofer SCAI to implement state-of-the-art visualization solutions for their CAE applications. The agreement with Fraunhofer SCAI will further strengthen Ceetrons position as a leading provider of 3D Visualization solutions to the CAE market worldwide. We see this as starting-point for a long lasting cooperation between the two organizations", says Ceetrons CEO Dr. Tor Helge Hansen.

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Autonomous 3D scanner supports individual manufacturing processes

Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).

Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
