Cloud-based design of high-pressure vessels

The Challenge

The challenge was to develop a model for the simulation of composite materials and to implement it on an HPC system. The goal was to improve Mikrosam’s capability to satisfy the principal ISO 11439 standard and the ECE R 110 normative for Gas cylinders “High pressure cylinders for the on-board storage of natural gas as a fuel for automotive vehicles” by developing a model for the design and simulation of composite laminates that could be implemented on an HPC system and obtain accurate results in an acceptable time.
