iPATC: HPC-based simulations for the Industrial Realm

Date: 06/Feb/2015



Target group: For professionals and Postgraduate Students of Informatics and the above mensioned application fields with intrest to use complex simulations in their research and development.

Cost: PATC Courses @ BSC do not charge fees.

Primary tabs



Registration for this course is closed. Please view the PATC program at BSC for other suitable courses.


The course is organized as a series of talks describing several industrial projects we are carrying on at the CASE department of BSC. All these projects has a common point: very complex simulations of physical systems lie at the core, requiring HPC-based software. The CASE department develops Alya, a multi-physics parallel simulation code capable of running on thousands of processors. Among the application fields are:

  • Oil and Energy,
  • Environment,
  • Aerospace and
  • Pharmaceutical Industry.
