We continue to improve our approach to impact reporting
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.
Tech-X Corporation has accessed the high performance computing HPC) facilities at the Science and Technology Facilities Council’s (STFC) Hartree Centre to accurately simulate particle beams of a novel next generation accelerator prototype.
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.
The Science and Technology Facilities Council’s (STFC) Hartree Centre has provided local SME ACAL Energy with the supercomputing capability they required to gain a better insight into their fuel cell technology, enabling them to solve a technical performance problem.
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.
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.
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.
