Manufacturing

By 1950, Akron, Ohio was the "Rubber Capital of the World." Among the large-scale rubber producers to have factories in the area were B.F. Goodrich, Goodyear, and Firestone. Today, Ohio is #1 in glass, plastics, and rubber manufacturing. Ohio is a leader in advanced manufacturing and the state’s workforce is the third largest in the country.

SimApp Analyses

As one of North America’s largest manufacturers of rigid metal and plastic containers, BWAY Corporation is a global market leader in packaging solutions for large and small manufacturers and container distributors. Traditionally, the company’s engineers and designers have relied on outsourcing the analysis and simulation of new product designs.

Industrial Engagement

It’s staggering to consider the myriad ways in which the Ohio Supercomputer Center and the AweSim industrial engagement program benefit a wide array of industries. It is also hard to conceive how few leaders in these industries know what they could be gaining from the innovative cloud-based simulation application platform. 

OSC overview

Since the creation of the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) in 1987, the center’s staff has provided the critical services that allow Ohio researchers, professors and students to achieve great new levels of success, from empowering amazing scientific discoveries to partnering on remarkable industrial innovations.

CERAMIC COMPONENTS

Aviation industry manufacturers have traditionally relied upon conventional metals and alloys for constructing internal engine parts. During operation, these engines can generate sufficient heat to raise temperatures to within 50 degrees of the melting point of the nickel-based superalloys, titanium, aluminum and steel used in engine construction.

Building better, faster jet engines

Aerospace engineers such as Ohio State University professor Jen-Ping Chen, Ph.D., depend on modeling and simulations of turbomachinery, the alternating sections of spinning and fixed blades in a jet engine’s compressor and turbine, because the multiple stages and extreme temperatures make it difficult to conduct experimental measurements.
