Engineers and scientists simulate the physics of multi-state material flow in engine ducting, inside cooling jackets for thermal transfer as well as passenger temperature, noise and vibration. The materials used are followed from the ingot through the stamping process and into impact studies increasing occupant safety. Airbag sensors and speed of deployment are tested and reviewed against both empirical data and human dummy. Part stiffness and bending, fatigue are reviewed for material evaluation; weight reduction. Composites, alloys and plastics are studied for strength and rupture characteristics.
SGI solutions for Multi-Disciplinary Simulations provide structured methodologies to capture critical product requirements and facilitate quality designs at lower cost with reduced time to market. These solutions incorporate both of SGI's complementary server architectures: the SGI® UV product line based on Intel® Xeon® processors and the SGI® ICE product line based on Intel® Xeon® and AMD Opteron processors. SGI's multi-workflow environment allows customers to deploy both technologies to achieve maximum overall productivity without adding complexity. SGI solutions for Multi-Disciplinary Simulations provide an integrated and structured analysis and design process involving capability and capacity computing with centralized management of all simulation processes and data. These solutions enable:
