Pipistrel is a Slovenian SME manufacturing lightweight aircraft. Pipistrel routinely uses simulation to validate and improve its designs. However, for highly accurate predictions of the aerodynamic properties of aircraft, advanced and computationally demanding numerical algorithms have to be employed, in particular for turbulence modelling. These simulations exceed the current computational capacities of the SME. To overcome these limitations, simulations have been made on Cloud-based HPC systems. These simulations enable Pipistrel to simulate designs more accurately and more cost-effectively.

The use of Cloud-based-HPC simulations has enabled Ergolines to develop better control systems with significant benefits for its customers and to its presence in the marketplace.
Mikrosam is an SME designing machines for the production of artefacts from composite materials. Its products include machines which wind fibres and resins into pressure vessels such as those for the storage of LPG in vehicles and for the storage of natural gas.

The pioneering use of Cloud-based HPC simulations in this area has enabled Mikrosam to significantly reduce the cost and time to develop new designs and to provide its customers with enhanced products.
Texas is a Spanish SME whose business is the tightening of flanges and sealing of pipe joints. This is a labour intensive process where the down-time of an installation is very expensive and where the failure of a seal can be catastrophic. Texas had previously used limited computer simulations. In this case the detailed simulation of the tightening of flanges required the use of Cloud-based HPC simulations. Such simulations have demonstrated significant benefits to Texas's customers with a saving of ~€200k per flange to be tightened.
Prysmian Group is world leader in the development and supply of energy and telecom cables and associated systems.

Lonza is one of the world's leading suppliers to the Pharma&Biotech and Specialty Ingredients markets. Its operations require a detailed knowledge of the thermodynamic properties of the target compounds. The use of simulation can bring massive savings to Lonza's production processes. Experimentally determined pure component densities cost around €2,700 per substance for a very limited temperature and pressure range. Compared to that, 60 molecular simulations carried out in the entire fluid region up to arbitrary high pressures will cost around €1,600 yielding not just the density, but every static thermodynamic property simultaneously. Clearly Cloud-based HPC simulations have considerable benefits for Lonza.

Due to these improvements, Enginsoft expects to increase its market share by at least 1% with a resultant profit of €100,000 per year.
Binkz is an SME which provides state-of-the-art consultancy services involving drifting snow. Roof collapses due to accumulated and drifting snow are responsible for losses of hundreds of millions of Euros as well as bodily injuries and loss of life. This is a problem for all countries in Northern Europe and more generally in the Northern hemisphere. It leads to a costly over-design of buildings, which could be avoided if snow loads could be predicted with sufficient accuracy. The simulation of drifting snow requires significant compute resources, which can only be provided by a large HPC system, not affordable to an SME. However, the economics of a Cloud-based-HPC solution are very attractive and affordable to Binkz.
