Achievements on our infrastructure
Industrial use cases
Wind energy simulations at 3E NV
3E NV, a Belgian renewable energy consultancy firm, makes use of the VSC infrastructure and knowledge to run mesoscale wheather/climate simulations over a period of several decades.
Janssen Pharmaceutica uses the VSC Tier-1 infrastructure to analyse large data sets with the aim of reducing the failure rate in the clinic II phase of the development of new medicines.
Bekaert nv: modeling wire manufacturing
Bekaert is world leader in steel wire transformation. It relies on VSC infrastructure and knowhow to predict the behaviour of steel wire during transformation processes.
Diabatix - Convenient access to efficient thermal design
Diabatix is a Flemish startup that focuses on the design, simulation and optimization of refrigeration components. Thanks to the VSC, it is able to serve its customers 50 times faster.
Academic use cases
Simulation of plasma - surface interactions
Computational modelling and simulation is a vital tool in the study of the structure and chemical reactivity of nanomaterials and biomolecules. These computational studies are not feasible without the
Research on the dynamical interaction between plasmas and magnetic fields
The Centre for mathematical Plasma Astrophysics (CmPA) @ KU Leuven concentrates its research on the dynamical interaction between plasmas and magnetic fields.
Regional climate studies
Climate research is about uncovering all elements that influence the climate and discovering the way they interact. Computational modelling on HPC systems is a crucial part of this research.
Molecular modeling spurs innovative technology against global warming
Relying on computational research, the Center for Molecular Modeling is able to present a new, cheaper technology that removes CO2 from exhaust gases by using the waste heat of these gases.
Mechanistic modeling and in silico evolution of gene regulatory networks
Evolutionary Systems Biology lab (VIB, UGent) develops a computational model of a gene regulatory network, offering new insights on the evolution and function of complex biological systems.
