SusTech Talk, Clean Energy Designs using Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) Simulations


HPC (high performance computing) has come a long way from simple weapons design/weather forecasting to now advanced design & predictions about many phenomena. A lot of this became possible thru giant strides in computer calculation power, connection capability as well as improved scientific models and extensive simulation supporting software. In this talk we will first get introduced to HPC and then learn how engineering designs are now being accelerated using simulations, and all this is combined with ever growing data plus expert domain knowledge, it can be employed to better design clean energy solutions and its long term positive impact on our world. We will then share a few modern day real world examples of this from different parts of the world.
