Computational Engineering

Computational engineering is a discipline dealing with the developing and exploiting of computational models and simulations to solve complex physical problems arising in analysis and design, not only in engineering, but in other discipline areas of research, as well.

CSC has acquired few commercial computational engineering software packages for the users at Finnish universities and universities of applied sciences. The licenses of the packages are available on CSC's computing servers, and mainly for solver analysis runs, that is, pre and post processing user must do on his or her local computer.

It is allowed to use the commercial packages in public-domain non-commercial research and education taken into account all the terms and conditions on the agreements between CSC and the software vendors.

Several computational engineering open source software packages are also available on CSC's computing servers.

The usage of both commercial and open source software packages are free of charge for above-mentioned user groups.

Computational Fluid Dynamics

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) stands for the description of the properties of fluid by solving physical equations using computational methods. CFD together with experiments and mathematical analysis helps to understand phenomena detected in fluids. CSC provides outstanding facilities for performing high performance CFD computations. CSC has an extensive selection of software for CFD and powerful supercomputers to carry out the computations. Moreover, we provide training courses for some of the application software.

Structural Analysis

Structural analysis comprises the set of physical laws and mathematics required to study and predict the behavior of structures. The subjects of structural analysis are engineering artifacts whose integrity is judged largely based upon their ability to withstand loads; they commonly include buildings, bridges, aircraft, and ships.

Other Disciplines

The usage of CSC's computational engineering software is not just limited to the above-mentioned two main branches, but the software are applicable on many other disciplines, as well. The full capability of the specific package is described in software vendor's web page, see the page links in the software list on CSC Docs.
