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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
