Bull and ESI Group announced partnership to deliver industry solutions

PAM-CRASH, the leading automotive virtual prototyping solution, has been designed and optimized to take advantage of Bull NovaScale’s server and cluster architecture

Bull and ESI Group announce a partnership to support ESI Group’s industry solutions for crash simulation on Bull NovaScale servers and Bull NovaScale clusters. The second step of this agreement will consist in the deployment of all of ESI Group solutions on Bull NovaScale servers and clusters.
Benefiting from the close cooperation between ESI and Bull technical experts, full scale tests of car to car crashes (a 2 Million element model of a Neon car) have been modeled and simulated on a NovaScale cluster of 128 Intel® Itanium®2 processors. They show impressive levels of performance and scalability with a reported 89% efficiency on 64 processors and more than 78% efficiency on the full 128, thus enabling critically important overnight restitution times for the highly detailed models that are today required in the automotive industry.
Bull and ESI Group R&D teams also cooperate through projects such as FAME2, one of the key projects for the System@tic competitive cluster (pôle de compétitivité) to further enhance the scalability levels of ESI Group’s industry solutions on NovaScale systems, and allow the industrial usage of even more detailed models. Ultimately, this work will allow automobile manufacturers to add more concrete security enhancements in the design of new car models without impacting their time-to-market and financial requirements.
