EXCELLERAT is the European Center of Excellence for Engineering Applications. HLRS has teamed up to support several key engineering industries in Europe in dealing with complex applications using HPC technologies. We conduct research, provide leadership, guidance on good practice, user support mechanisms as well as training and networking activities to our community. Our goal is to help Europe leverage scientific progress in HPC driven engineering and address current economic and societal challenges.
The setup of EXCELLERAT complements the current activities of each HPC center involved and enables the development of next-generation engineering applications. The aim of EXCELLERAT is to support the engineering community at a level that no single HPC provider can.
Our vision for the Centre is summarized in the following objectives:
To fulfill its mission, EXCELLERAT will base on six carefully chosen reference applications (Nek5000, Alya, AVBP, Fluidity, FEniCS, Flucs), which were analyzed on their potential to support the aim to achieve EXASCALE performance in HPC for Engineering. Thus, they are promising candidates to be executed on the Exascale Demonstrators, Pre-Exascale Systems and Exascale Machines.
