Sabalcore Computing and CD-adapco have teamed to support the University of Missouri-Columbia (UM) Formula SAE racing team for the 2012-2013 season.
Each year the University designs and builds a quarter-scale formula-style race car from scratch to compete against other universities in various design judging and dynamic racing events.
Students will use CD-adapco's STAR-CCM+ for advanced aerodynamics simulations on their vehicle. Their simulations require large amounts of processing power to model complex aerodynamics simulations. Due to limitations in the university's computational resources, the time to run advanced simulations can be prohibitive to the design process. To solve this problem, Sabalcore has donated processing time on its HPC Cloud service, allowing UM remote access to Sabalcore's compute resources on-demand. CD-adapco donated STAR-CCM+ Power-On-Demand.
