Queen's aims to change the future of car manufacturing with supercomputer

16 Apr 2012 Belfast - Leading industry experts and international car manufacturers have come to Queen's University in Belfast to see how academics are aiming to change the future of car manufacturing through a new 'supercomputer'.

The GBP 500,000 'supercomputer' at Queen's, which is one of only a few in the UK dedicated to materials modelling, aims to develop new materials for use in industry including car-making. It uses innovative technology to develop high strength lightweight steels which could replace the materials currently used in car design to create new light weight vehicles.

International industry leaders, including those from BMW, Voestalpine, ThyssenKrupp and many more have come to Queen's for the first annual Consortium. The 'meeting of minds' has united the research which is taking place at Queen's with the use of the supercomputer and those who are at the front line of manufacturing.
