The Water Council and the Milwaukee Institute have announced a new partnership to “accelerate water-based product development and research utilizing Wisconsin’s very own high performance computing and storage resources.”
Under the agreement, the Milwaukee Institute, a nonprofit, will be offering its high performance computational (HPC) systems and services to Global Water Center tenants. The Milwaukee Institute recently made a $500,000 investment to double the capacity of its HPC infrastructure.
“The Institute is delighted to partner with and assist Water Council member companies and Global Water Center tenants in their activities requiring applied computational science,” said Jay Bayne, executive director at the Milwaukee Institute. “The Institute’s high performance computing resources are especially useful for modeling, simulation, visualization and analytics in water research areas such as computational biology, fluid dynamics and finite element analysis.”
“Our relationship with the Milwaukee Institute will accelerate product development and innovation activity here at the Global Water Center,” said Dean Amhaus, president and CEO of The Water Council. “The Center’s tenants will now be able to easily run software simulations of products, or ground breaking research thus shorting the time from new idea, to commercial offering. Access to innovate technology tools and thought processes is precisely what collaboration at the Global Water Center is all about.”
A. O. Smith Corp. will be the first Global Water Center tenant to take advantage of the Institute’s HPC infrastructure and services. Other companies are currently in discussions to augment their product development and design processes utilizing the Institute’s resources.
