  • Featured Image PRACE SHAPE and Albatern: producing power from waves

    Albatern’s wave power generation product consists of buoyant Squid modules which have three arms and are capable of linking with up-to three other Squids. The Squid modules and their link-arms contain mechanisms to generate power, capturing the heave and surge motion of the waves via hydraulics. In this way, Albatern an innovative Scottish SME of 15 engineers has developed a highly scalable, modular wave power generator. Albatern’s project supported by PRACE SHAPE marked the start of the development of a physics code capable of simulating and predicting the power of a large scale Wavenet array (100 or more devices).

  • PRACE SHAPE and NEXIO SIMULATION: Amping up electromagnetic modelling

    NEXIO SIMULATION is a French SME and subsidiary of Nexio Group, develops electromagnetic simulation software called CAPITOLE-EM to study the electromagnetic behaviour of any product during the design process, before the manufacturing phase. After a first step performed locally in France using the HPC-PME initiative, their PRACE SHAPE Project has allowed them by accessing to HPC resources and expertise in HPC and numerical simulation to jump from a personal computer version of this software to an HPC version.

  • Featured Image PRACE Launches Second Call for Applications under SHAPE

    SHAPE (SME HPC Adoption Programme in Europe) is a pan-European programme supported by PRACE. The Programme aims to raise awareness and provide European SMEs with the expertise necessary to take advantage of the innovation possibilities created by High-Performance Computing (HPC), thus increasing their competitiveness. The programme allows SMEs to benefit from the expertise and knowledge developed within the top-class PRACE Research Infrastructure.

  • Featured Image Working with PRACE: an insider’s perspective

    Professor Stephan Roche of the Catalan Institute of Technology in Spain is currently working on his project Longitudinal and Transverse Electronic Transport in Atomically Doped Graphene from First Principles, for which he has received 22 million core hours from PRACE. He is one of the early adopters of HPC in the Graphene Flagship initiative. Here, we speak to him about his experience of working with PRACE.
