Stanford University and UberCloud Achieve Breakthrough in Living Heart Simulations

Living Heart Project-logo-Gen1-gif-180x140Before a drug reaches the market, pharma companies need to check for the risk of inducing cardiac arrhythmia. Currently, this process takes years and involves costly animal and human studies. The Living Matter Laboratory of Stanford University developed an extended living heart software tool enabling drug developers to quickly assess the viability of a new compound. This means better and safer drugs reaching the market to improve patients’ lives. Supported by UberCloud, Dassault, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (Sponsor), and Advania, the Stanford team was able to perform extensive simulations in the Cloud. Based on the Abaqus 2017 software the computational model is now able to assess the response of new drug compounds rapidly and inexpensively. However, the creation of a suitable model requires taking a multi-scale approach that is computationally expensive: the electrical activity of cells is modeled in high detail and resolved simultaneously in the entire heart. Read about these achievements in detail in the HPCwire article.

ANSYS in Action – HPC in the Cloud – With ANSYS Cloud Hosting Partners like UberCloud

ANSYS 200x130High-performance computing (HPC) enables you to solve more problems — and larger problems — faster than ever. Unfortunately, not every engineer has access to HPC resources. ANSYS Enterprise Cloud addresses this shortcoming by providing a virtual simulation data center. Attend this 20-minute WEBINAR to see how easy it is to start using ANSYS on the cloud for high-performance computing. Another interesting ANSYS WEBINAR is about HPC – From Desktop to Cloud. In the past, high-performance computing (HPC) was primarily associated with supercomputers. Today HPC can work at many scales, from desktop to cluster to cloud computing resources. Nevertheless, many misconceptions still surround HPC, preventing its deployment in product development scenarios where it could clearly provide great value. Learn how ANSYS 17.0 updates can make HPC easier and more powerful to use than ever before. You will gain insight to help you steer around possible failure points as you consider using HPC, whether you own the computer hardware or employ cloud solutions.

How Do You Feel About CAD Software Moving to the Cloud?

CAD in the Cloud smallWhen Autodesk announced that it would be moving some of its major software products to the cloud in 2015, a reactionary backlash began from some of the more vocal content creators who use their software on a regular basis. The transition from perpetual licenses to subscriptions was justified by the company in order to make recurring payments more predictable, to increase the rate of new users signing up and to decrease piracy by using cloud subscription verification processes. Fastforward to today, and every CAD vendor now has plans for the cloud. We’ve seen the rise of Onshape, a CAD program that runs completely within your browser, making it an extremely powerful mobile CAD platform. Autodesk has consistently developed Fusion 360, though it is only partially cloud based, requiring a relatively sophisticated GPU and part of your workstation’s hard drive.

CAD in the Cloud – Market Trends 2017

CAD Market 2017Jon Peddie Research (JPR) and Business Advantage Group (BA) are making available their collaborative report on CAD in the Cloud: The CiC Market Trends 2017 report. CAD/CAM/CAE users are in the early stages of cloud-based workflow adoption. This report delivers a view of rapidly-emerging trends in this market, such as current and future usage plans, management and infrastructure approaches, hardware considerations, benefit perception vs. reality, and perceptions on importance of the technology, enablers and inhibitors and awareness of leading vendors.

SimScale Hits the 100,000 Users Mark

Simscale for June 2017Five years after it’s launch, SimScale announced that their engineering cloud platform has reached 100 000 users. In 2013, the company was launching the world’s first cloud-based simulation platform, making a big step towards democratization of the engineering simulation. Their goal was to enable every engineering to design better products faster. To get closer to that goal, in 2015, the company has announced the launch of its Community Plan, which grants free access to the full functionality of the platform to any user willing to share his projects publicly. According to SimScale, this decision was an important enabler of reaching the 100 000 users milestone. The SimScale community library now consists of over 1,000 high quality, publicly available simulation projects, which can be used for free as templates when working on an individual simulation setup.

Digital Engineering’s Special Issue on The Democratization of Technology

Democratization of TechnologyIt’s easy to forget that we have the power of yesterday’s supercomputers in today’s desktop workstations and the power of yesterday’s workstations in the phones in our pockets. That sets a high bar. We now expect the same ease of use when it comes to tapping into HPC resources on-premise or in the cloud, or tapping on our screens to use advanced design and simulation software. We are not there yet, but as the articles in this Digital Engineering democratization compilation issue show: Many vendors are addressing the logistics, engineering challenges and Return on Investment (ROI) needed to make transformative technologies accessible to all. Inside this Special Issue you will find articles about: Preparing for the HPC floodgates to open; A new virtual reality; Fromm All-in-One to Pick-What-You-Want CAD; Designing the future of manufacturing; What’s happening to cluster computing on-premise and in the cloud; The implications of simulation’s app-ification; and The democratization of PLM. You can download this free Special Issue HERE.
