Modern and future CAE tools often require significant computing power to apply to complex, real-world problems. In order to provide this environment, SIMCenter has partnered with the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) in order to leverage their extensive supercomputing environment. The SIMCenter lab is based on a similar architecture used in industry to allow a flexible yet powerful computing environment to researchers. This environment allows engineers to connect to Blade servers via a Remote Graphic Session. This pushes all of the effort of model manipulation, pre-processing, and post-processing off the local machine.  From the Blade, it is possible to post jobs to the domain-specific CAE Solvers on the supercomputer resources available via OSC. All of this is enabled by a high-speed fiber optic connection from SIMCenter facilities in Smith Lab to OSC.
