Computational and Scientific Engineering

Principal Investigator: Tobias Loose , Ingenieurbüro Loose, Wössingen (Germany)

HPC Platform used: Hazel Hen of HLRS

Local Project ID: HPC_welding

As an integral part of the PRACE SHAPE project HPC Welding, the parallel solvers of the Finite Element Analysis software LS-DYNA were used by Ingenieurbüro Tobias Loose to perform a welding analysis on HLRS HPC system Hazel Hen. A variety of test cases relevant for industrial applications had been set up with DynaWeld, a welding and heat treatment pre-processor for LS-DYNA, and were run on different numbers of compute cores to test its scaling capabilities.
