The design of the car of the future requires going over the usual RANS approach, since it fails to predict with an acceptable prediction accuracy features like transitional flows, instabilities, noise gneration, combustion efficiency. This in turn requires exascale systems, to sustain more high-fidelity simulations techniques, like LES or DES. EXCELLERAT paves the way to this transition.

Cloud model (MONC) is an atmospheric model used throughout the weather and climate community to study clouds and turbulent flows. This is often coupled with the CASIM microphysics model, which provides the capability to investigate interactions at the millimetre scale and study the formation and development of moisture.

A further increase in the performance of supercomputers is expected over the next few years. So-called exascale computers will be able to deliver more precise simulations. This leads to considerably more data.

High-performance computing (HPC) specialists are looking forward to the technological improvements that should arrive in the coming years as supercomputers approach the exascale. New approaches in hardware design (including new processors and high-bandwidth memory) and in application development (for example, code parallelization and data processing) will expand the power of supercomputing and therefore make it possible to solve new kinds of complex problems.

Current practice in the design of hydro-power plants is to determine empirically the most suitable design in a series of time-consuming experiments. However, SMEs in this sector have to face private and public tenders to sell their turbines in both national and global markets, where the competition is very strong and the development time is very short.

Due to the travel restrictions linked to the corona virus, we have successfully organised our first EXCELLERAT virtual All Hands Meeting with more than 40 participants. Instead of hosting it in Stockholm from 5th until 7th May, this was our team’s largest online conference so far.
