Paris France January 12And 2023 Atos today announced that it has been selected by Austrian company AVL List GmbH to introduce a new high-performance computing suite based on… BullSequana XH2000 servers In addition to a five-year maintenance service. As the world’s leading provider of mobility technologies for development, simulation and testing in the automotive industry, the company will rely on the Atos supercomputer to run more complex and powerful simulations, while optimizing its power consumption.

As a global supplier to the automotive industry, AVL provides its customers with highly complex computer simulations for the design, development and testing of powertrains, workpieces, drive units and large engines. Every step of the way, processes are represented digitally and require high and reliable computer performance as well as storage capacity. The block is used for a wide range of applications, from finite element analysis (FEA) to optimization of structure and collision simulation to fluid mechanics simulations of combustion processes and battery cooling. Commercial software packages of well-known manufacturers as well as AVL-List’s Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software package are used for this task.

The new computer network implemented by Atos has more than doubled the computational performance in engineering, so the processing times of computational tasks in customer projects can be reduced by more than half. In addition, it is possible to provide a greater variety of computation results without having to access external computing resources such as cloud instances. This results in quick and efficient engineering workflow adaptations to new tasks.

With this kit, the AVL also benefits from a highly energy-efficient system, including a direct liquid cooling (DLC) system from Atos. This technology was developed to avoid overheating. It consumes much less electricity than conventional cooling systems while ensuring stable operation with virtually no noise.

AVL‘s Passion is innovation andgiant operating system It meets this requirement in terms of performance and energy efficiency. Direct liquid cooling (DLC) technology has opened up the XH2000 range of unprecedented performance, with minimal energy requirements and a green footprint, because 95 percent of waste heat is not released to the environment, but is further utilized via the cooling water circuit” explanationso Günter Bachler, Chief Information Technology Systems Officer, AVL List GmbH.

Stephane Kerro, Head of Advanced ComputersgCentral and Eastern Europeatos AddsoHigh performance computers are among the key technologies of our time and have become indispensable in medical science and research weather forecast but also in the industry, Especially in digital product development. With HPC, industrial players can Accelerate the construction of digital prototypes Which can be run quickly and as often as required in several variants And therefore Gain flexibilityInventive acumen and strength. We are glad to support AVL for Simulate and test automotive technologies for safer commuting. “
