Announcements CD-adapco, the leading provider of automated flow, thermal and stress simulation to the automotive industry, announces the formation of the ATOMIC project.

The ATOMIC project is focused on developing Computational Fluid Dynamics methods to model the atomization of sprays generated by engine fuel injection systems. The atomization process is critical to the efficiency and emissions of both diesel and gasoline engines.

Dr Richard Johns, CD-adapco's director for the Automotive industry is confident that the results of the project will have an immediate beneficial impact: "We anticipate that the results of this project will lead to a more fundamental understanding and predictive capability for engine analysis, ultimately contributing to lower carbon dioxide and polluting emissions."

The project is supported by leading automotive companies, large engine manufacturers and fuel injection system suppliers including Daimler AG, Delphi Diesel Systems, Lotus, Honda, MAN Diesel, Porsche AG and Wärtsilä. Academic institutions providing experimental support include ETH Zurich and Loughborough University.

Designed to handle large-scale parallel computations, the ATOMIC project will be powered by the HP Cluster Platform Workgroup System. This high-performance system utilizes an HP BladeSystem c3000 enclosure, Gigabit Ethernet switch and five HP ProLiant BL260c G5 blade servers. Each blade server features two Xeon Intel E5450 quad-core processors, 12-gigabyte (GB) memory and two 120 GB disks. The HP Cluster Platform Workgroup System will be used to model engine fuel injection system sprays from the companies participating in the ATOMIC project.

“Customers in automotive and engine research are continually looking for cost-effective solutions that deliver the high performance computing needed to run more simulations economically,” said Ed Turkel, manager, Product Marketing, Scalable Computing and Infrastructure, HP. “The CD-adapco and HP combined system will help advance simulation technology that will provide customers with powerful, environmentally friendly systems to further accelerate the product development process.”
