HPC for Engineering and Forecasting

With Aura Computing, you will make a difference where time is always a critical factor and results have significant real-world impact

Both engineering industries & weather and climate centers worldwide rely on the power of high-performance computing (HPC).

Reducing the carbon footprint is a global aim and a significant challenge for all industries, including weather and forecasting. Unfortunately, high-performance computing can be a significant source of CO2 in traditional data centers. We, however, have taken care of that for you:

  • Access a very low-carbon infrastructure of several tens of thousands of cores that reuse IT waste heat in buildings
  • Drastically reduce the environmental impact of your computing activities
  • Benefit from a detailed report on each energy expense item, so you won’t have to guestimate
  • Know the percentage of savings achieved compared to a conventional computing infrastructure


HPC for Engineering

Aura Computings’s high-performance computing (HPC) plays a crucial role in the engineering industry by providing the computational power needed to tackle complex and resource-intensive tasks. Here are some ways in which HPC helps the engineering industry:

Fire simulations are usually done with advanced CFD calculations (Computational Fluid Dynamics) which requires an excessive amount of computing power (CPU). In such simulations, time is often the most important resource for clients, meaning the overall design and the results should be available as early as possible for the project. In practice, FDS can be used for simulating different fire scenarios, reconstruction of a fire scene, and evacuation planning.

HPC plays a significant role in helping engineers conduct simulations and optimizations that enables designing everyday products more efficiently and safely.

With HPC, researchers and scientists are able to make new discoveries faster than ever leading to better patient outcomes. HPC means that they can work with larger data sets, collaborate more efficiently, and scale up parallel simulation of millions of chemical formulations or device designs to find the optimal candidates faster. 

Create highly detailed and accurate simulations and models of real-world systems which is essential for testing and optimizing designs before they are physically built, saving time and resources.

HPC allows transportation engineers to accurately model different public transit options and make informed decisions on where to invest their time and money. This creates efficiencies and ultimately allows us to travel more efficiently.

HPC can help engineer safer and more efficient cities by providing a platform for running analysis and testing new developments. For example, cloud HPC can be used to run simulations that model the impact of building skyscrapers, bridges, residential communities and other structures on everything from traffic patterns to greenhouse gas emissions and more. Architects and construction companies can also use cloud HPC to create and test building models before construction begins. 

Simulate the behavior of materials at the atomic and molecular levels aiding in the development of new materials with specific properties and applications.

Perform intricate analyses that would be impractical or impossible with conventional computing resources including finite element analysis (FEA), computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and structural analysis, among others.

Optimize designs, processes, and systems by running numerous iterations and variations quickly leading to more efficient and cost-effective solutions.

In industries like automotive, aerospace, and manufacturing, HPC facilitates the design and development of new products by simulating their performance and behavior under various conditions.

Optimize energy consumption in engineering processes, leading to more sustainable and environmentally friendly designs and operations.

Evaluate potential risks and safety issues associated with complex systems, such as nuclear power plants or large-scale infrastructure projects, by running extensive simulations and scenario analyses.

With the increasing amount of data generated by sensors and IoT devices, HPC is crucial for processing and analyzing large datasets in real-time, which is vital for monitoring and maintaining systems and infrastructure.

HPC systems excel at parallel processing, which is essential for tasks like rendering, 3D modeling, and video simulations.

HPC for Weather and Forecasting

How can you utilize high-performance computing for weather and forecasting?

HPC is instrumental in weather and forecasting by supporting the development and execution of advanced numerical models, data assimilation techniques, and ensemble forecasting systems. The accuracy, timeliness, and precision of weather predictions have significantly improved thanks to the computational power of HPC, ultimately benefiting various industries and public safety.

Aura Computing provides the computational power necessary to process vast amounts of data, run complex numerical models, and generate accurate and timely weather predictions. Here’s how HPC is used for weather and forecasting:

Process and integrate data from various sources, including satellites, weather stations, radar, and ocean buoys, into numerical weather prediction models. Data assimilation techniques use mathematical algorithms to combine observed data with model outputs, improving the accuracy of initial conditions for forecasts.

Enable the execution of high-resolution NWP models that simulate the Earth’s atmosphere and other environmental factors allowing for finer grid resolutions and more complex physics, resulting in more accurate forecasts.

Run ensemble forecasting models. These models create multiple simulations with slightly different initial conditions or model parameters to account for uncertainties in the forecast.

Track and predict severe weather events, such as hurricanes, tornadoes, and severe thunderstorms. High-resolution NWP models and real-time data assimilation are essential for predicting the intensity, track, and timing of these events.

HPC is used for long-term climate modeling to understand climate patterns and trends. Climate models simulate the Earth’s climate system, including temperature, precipitation, sea-level rise, and more, over extended periods, helping scientists make climate projections and assess the impact of climate change.

HPC systems are equipped to provide real-time or near-real-time forecasts. This is crucial for issuing timely weather warnings and advisories to protect lives and property during extreme weather events.

Enable the use of high-resolution weather models, which are essential for accurately predicting weather phenomena on a local or regional scale.

Utilize long-range or seasonal forecasting, allowing for predictions weeks, months, or even years in advance.
