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:

For the first time, an international team of scientists based in Regensburg, Germany, has recorded the orbitals of single molecules in different charge states in a novel type of microscopy. The research findings are published under the title “Mapping orbital changes upon electron transfer with tunneling microscopy on insulators” in the prestigious journal “Nature”.
The building blocks of matter surrounding us are atoms and molecules. The properties of that matter, however, are often not set by these building blocks...

Physicists from the University of Basel have developed a new method to examine the elasticity and binding properties of DNA molecules on a surface at extremely low temperatures. With a combination of cryo-force spectroscopy and computer simulations, they were able to show that DNA molecules behave like a chain of small coil springs. The researchers reported their findings in Nature Communications.
DNA is not only a popular research topic because it contains the blueprint for life – it can also be used to produce tiny components for technical applications.
