Computational Research Laboratories signed a deal today with the Force One India to design Formula One cars
The sports car will be designed in the city from now. Thanks to a deal between only force one racing car teamin India with the fasted supercomputer in the country, the feat will be achieved. Force One India and Computational Research Laboratories have come together to design the next generation sports car will be designed in Pune.
Computational Research Laboratories (CRL), a wholly owned subsidiary of Tata Sons and Force India Formula One Team (FIF1), Indias first and only F1 team today inked a multi million dollar deal. Dr. Vijay Mallya, Chairman and Team Principal, FIFO Team Ltd and Mr. S Ramodarai, Chairman, CRL were present at the occasion. As per the deal between two companies, CRL will offer fully automated Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) solution to improve aerodynamic efficiency in the current racing models. This will be the first time a Formula 1 team will use an Indian HPC (high performance computing) organization for their design activities.
Through this partnership, Force Indias design team will now have access to Eka, Indias fastest supercomputer capable of 133 trillion calculations per second! The new system will increase Force Indias CFD computing capacity in the first year by a factor of at least four.
Mallya said, The tie-up with CRL gives us an immediate 200% increase in our CFD processing capability which will rise to almost 800% by the end of 2010. We have integrated our own CFD methods with the CRL facility to allow Force Indias CFD engineers to seamlessly interface between the UK and India effectively.
Ramodarai said: Force India Formula One Team has showcased India as a team to watch in the global motor racing arena. We are proud to be associated with this brand. This deal demonstrates the value that an organization can get by leveraging ‘Eka’ and the complete HPC support ecosystem we have set up at CRL.
Virtual wind tunnel simulation applications on eka, using Computational Fluid Dynamics, can help address the limitations of a testing environment in understanding the impact of design on the aerodynamic abilities of aeroplanes and automobiles. The CFD designs for Formula One cars, are amongst the most complicated, and require extremely high computing powers for timely and accurate results. CRL will provide Force India with a complete HPC ecosystem, ranging from fully automated pre processing to post processing simulation work flow on eka, customized configurations to application optimization services for Force Indias design activities.
How It Will Be Done
CRL will provide Virtual wind tunnel simulation applications on eka which used Computational Fluid Dynamics. This can help control the limitations of a testing environment in understanding the impact of design on the aerodynamic abilities of aeroplanes and automobiles. The CFD designs for Formula One cars are amongst the most complicated and require extremely high computing powers for timely and accurate results.
