• Supercomputer Enables Sound Prediction Model for Controlling Noise

    Combining principles from computational fluid dynamics and acoustics, researchers at the TU Berlin have developed a model that could simplify the process of designing noise cancelling structures for airplanes, ships, and ventilation systems.

  • HLRS Visualization Supports Stuttgart 21 Construction

    3D virtual reality models created at HLRS helped engineers to successfully build an architecturally unique and complex kind of reinforced concrete column that will be a showpiece of the new Stuttgart train station.

& Science

Research and science are the main pillars ensuring continuous delivery of high-edge services in every area of high-performance computing provisioning.



HLRS offers a variety of services to industry and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) way beyond plain HPC resource provisioning.



Simulations transform research and development, as well as decision making in politics. Dealing with simulations in a rational way is therefore a scientific and societal task in itself.


The High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) of the University of Stuttgart is one of the three member centres of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS). HLRS supports national and European researchers from science and industry by providing high-performance computing platforms and technologies, services and support. Services are provided in cooperation with the other two member centres of GCS and with industrial partners such as hww GmbH (T-Systems, Porsche AG) and SICOS BW GmbH.

HLRS conducts basic and applied research in the field of high-performance computing in publicly funded national and European projects as well as industrial research activities in association with partners from research and industry. Collaborative research in the automotive field is carried out in cooperation with the Automotive Simulation Center Stuttgart (ASCS).
