All projects involved in Fortissimo 1 have reached their official end. The last round of experiments ended in December of 2016. They have led to many successful new technologies which enabled European SMEs to be more competitive globally through the use of simulation services running on a High Performance Computing cloud infrastructure. EAL’s simulation service RheoCube is one such new technology that was made possible with help of Fortissimo. We are proud to say that Fortissimo published EAL’s success story of our cloud-based simulations of complex fluids with RheoCube on their website.
Together with Ioniqa and SURFsara, EAL received funding through the FP7 project Fortissimo. The goal of the project was to explore the technological and commercial potential and feasibility of high-fidelity virtual complex-fluids rheometry in the HPC cloud. The project resulted in the development of RheoCube, EAL’s virtual complex fluids rheometer. RheoCube is developed with the experimental researcher in mind and offers the strength and complexity of high-fidelity complex fluids simulations in an understandable and easy to use manner. As such, is has proven to reduce costs and time associated with the research and development of Magnetic Smart Materials as performed at Ioniqa.
