Sabalcore, CD-adapco Sponsor UM Formula SAE Team

MELBOURNE, Fla., Dec. 14 – Sabalcore Computing Inc., a leading high performance computing (HPC) cloud service provider, and CD-adapco, a leading provider of computer-aided engineering (CAE) software, have teamed to support the University of Missouri-Columbia (UM) Formula SAE racing team for the 2012-2013 season.

Each year the University of Missouri-Columbia designs and builds a quarter-scale formula-style race car from scratch to compete against other universities in various design judging and dynamic racing events. It is a very competitive design series and vehicle computer aided dynamics simulation has become a very important part of designing a winning car.

Students will use CD-adapco's STAR-CCM+ for advanced aerodynamics simulations on their vehicle. Their simulations require large amounts of processing power to model complex aerodynamics simulations. Due to limitations in the university's computational resources, the time to run advanced simulations becomes very prohibitive to the design process. To solve this problem, Sabalcore has donated processing time on their HPC Cloud service allowing UM remote access to Sabalcore's powerful compute resources on-demand. CD-adapco donated STAR-CCM+ Power-On-Demand which makes using HPC efficient and cost effective. Students are able to quickly and easily scale up their computational resources.

"Sabalcore has become a very popular compute resource for CAE. As a matter of fact, STAR-CCM+ is now the most popular commercial application used on our systems." said Dr. Kevin. Van Workum, CTO Sabalcore Computing Inc. "We are happy to sponsor the University of Missouri-Columbia Formula SAE Racing Team. With Sabalcore's high performance computing services, the students will solve larger and more detailed problems that they could not otherwise solve."

The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) is a non-profit educational and scientific organization dedicated to advancing mobility technology for use in everyday life. The Formula SAE competition requires SAE student members from universities around the world to conceive, design, fabricate, and compete with single-seat, open-wheel race cars.
