The Hartree Centre’s high performance computing (HPC) capabilities and 3D visualisation suite have enabled consumer goods multinational Unilever to boost its speed and efficiency in developing new home and personal care products.
The Met Office is taking advantage of the Science and Technology Facilities Council’s (STFC) Hartree Centre’s expertise in high performance computing to help develop their next generation weather forecasting and climate prediction model.
Cutting-edge capabilities from the Virtual Engineering Centre (VEC), underpinned by the Hartree Centre's high performance computing facilities, helped Jaguar Land Rover optimise its vehicle design and development process.
Advanced simulation and visualisation facilities at the Hartree Centre, accessed through the Virtual Engineering Centre (VEC), have enabled Bentley to design virtual next-generation models of its iconic luxury cars, reducing the need for expensive, time-consuming physical prototyping.
Researchers at Lancaster University are using the supercomputing capability of the Hartree Centre to accurately simulate the flow of complex fluids to improve oil extraction techniques.
Technology developed to advance STFC-funded research in particle physics and has underpinned the development of MRI scanners; a £111m industry that saves lives and improves.
Knowledge from STFC’s Central Laser Facility (CLF) was used to develop laser techniques for eye surgery; an industry which generates £400 million per year for the UK.
STFC’s Harwell Imaging Partnership (HIP) has aided Rolls-Royce in evaluating the benefits of fillet rolling on stress in aircraft engine components, by enabling access to STFC’s ISIS neutron and muon facility, as well as to new data analysis software created by STFC’s Scientific Computing Department.
Rapiscan Systems have teamed up with University College London (UCL) to use STFC’s VELA (Versatile Electron Linear Accelerator) for innovative testing to develop new technologies for future products.
