Hewlett Packard Enterprise selected to build new supercomputer for the National Supercomputing Centre Singapore

The next generation national supercomputer for Singapore will be a green, warm water-cooled system – one of the first known deployments of such a system in a tropical environment. When operational the supercomputer is expected to provide an aggregate of up to 10 PFLOPS of raw compute power and is eight times more powerful than the current ASPIRE1 supercomputer. ASPIRE1, which was commissioned in 2016, has been running at near full capacity in support of local advanced research that requires high-end computing resources. The new system is the first in a series of supercomputers that will be deployed in phases from now till 2025 to expand and upgrade Singapore’s high-performance computing (HPC) capabilities for the research community here.

About this Event

Continual development in high fidelity modeling and simulation allow scientists and engineers to derive deep insights from the detailed flow field information. This enables better evaluation and prediction of the performance, and devises optimized design for marine vessels and offshore platforms. Augmented by the power of supercomputer, marine and offshore industry is now more receptive towards the idealization of digital twins and in near future, cyber-physical integration.

In this webinar, a few examples on how high fidelity simulation with high performance computing (HPC) are employed for marine, offshore, and renewables sectors. This includes, but not limited to the following:

  • An Intelligent Hull Operation, Processing, & Evaluation (I-HOPE) platform developed by IHPC for high efficient vessel resistance prediction;
  • Design and optimization of marine and offshore structures;
  • Application focus on innovation in offshore renewable energy sector, such as tidal turbine and floating offshore wind turbine performance evaluation, and wind farm layout optimization;
  • Digital twin for ocean basin and towing tank, and reduce order modelling for future preparation of cyber-physical integration

In the examples, highlight will be on the HPC application in the high fidelity investigations, the development of digital twins, as well as the new and innovative modeling and simulation technologies. The talk will conclude with key benefits HPC empowered high fidelity simulation will bring to marine, offshore and renewables sector.
