UMIT Research Lab
UMIT Research Lab is an environment for fundamental research in computational science and engineering. Innovative software tools for simulation and high-performance computing are developed and tested in collaboration with industry partners.
The development of hardware architectures with a multidue of cores, parallel computing, visualization and elastic IT infrastructure is rapid. This brings new possibilities for technical and scientific computing, new software tools and services for handling large amount of data rapidly. UMIT Research Lab focuses on developing new solutions in knowledge in simulation technology that unleashes the new computing powers.
The biggest potential for innovation occurs in the very early stages of development where new ideas and concepts are shaped. Solutions for increased use of simulation in these stages was on the topic of workshop in the Simovate project held at UMIT Research Lab on January 23.
Professor Mats G Larson at UMIT Research Lab was awarded 21 MSEK from the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research for working with 'Cut Finite Elements, geometries and design optimization'
Simulations enables new product development to be easier and more cost effective. This applies particularily to forest machinery, scientists showed when Skogens dag was arranged during Västerbottensveckorna in Grand Hôtel, Stockholm.
Two scientists associated with the UMIT Research Lab has been awarded a grant of 600 000 SEK from the Kempe foundation for researching real-world problems based on extended theory of tolerances.
Three Researchers from UMIT was awarded grants from the Swedish Research Council, totaling almost 10 MSEK.
