Since 2007, this team has supported around 150 SMBs and has reduced their product development time and cost of 50% by applying simulation technologies (CFD/CAE) on the supercomputer. This team has developed LARD (Large-scale Realistic Design) environment which can provide realistic design and simulation to substitute physical design/experiments activities into virtual design/experiment activities.
The aim of LARD project is the development of design and simulation environment closest to the real world. This imposes large-scale data processing, large-scale simulation, VR/AR and photo-realistic rendering technologies. In this project, the team also tries to integrate design activities such as digital mockup (DMU), product styling (conceptual design) with simulation activities in a virtual reality environment for the seamless product design and simulation.
The KSC team has selected
for the LARD environment development. Avizo software is the ideal software for 3D visualization and analysis of simulation data and is the perfect tool for the visualization on immersive VR systems and large multi-screen configurations. More than a simple application, Avizo is a 3D software framework, which makes customization and in-house development possible. This has been really useful for the KSC team. KSC also deployed DirectViz, a powerful extension providing real-time realistic 3D rendering.
