New Delhi, Apr 16: Boeing Company today said it has partnered with Computational Research Laboratory (CRL), a subsidiary of the Tata Group, to test and validate one of the world's fastest supercomputers- Eka System.
The Eka System is the fourth fastest supercomputer in the world and the fastest in Asia as rated by the International Conference for High Performance Computing Networking Storage and Analysis and will be used by CRL to run the High Lift Computational Fluid Dynamics program that will model high lift aerodynamic simulations in three dimensions for Boeing, said a statement. High lift aerodynamic simulations play a critical role in the design and development of airplane wings by simulating how shapes and structures respond to airflows.
As part of the collaboration, Boeing has shared information with CRL on the processes needed to conduct numerical simulations on high lift aerodynamics. Boeing will also provide CRL with wind tunnel and flight test data for comparison purposes.
''The Boeing-Tata partnership is strong and growing .This collaboration with Tata is another example of the mutually beneficial partnerships that Boeing is developing in India,'' Boeing India President Ian Thomas said. Through such high value interactions, Indian industry is entering Boeing's global aerospace supply chain, he added.
