Boom delta wing

Paris, France – Denver-based Boom Supersonic is strengthening its strategic partnership with Rescale to leverage the power of cloud high-performance computing (HPC) for design and optimization of its new supersonic passenger jet.

The world’s first commercial supersonic aircraft, Concorde, was envisioned in the 1960s for next-generation, high-speed intercontinental travel. It was designed with a short wingspan to reduce supersonic drag, but with a long swept delta to produce lift-inducing vortices at landing and takeoff speeds. While a technical marvel, the plane wasn’t commercially successful due to high operating costs and the inability to fill 100 seats at the $20,000 round-trip ticket price. It was retired in 2003 after Airbus could no longer source parts, a rare backwards step in technology progress.

After fourteen years, Boom is reigniting the dream of supersonic travel and showing off its updated XB-1 supersonic demonstrator  at the Paris Air Show. The design phase this time looks very different from the 1960s. Leveraging Rescale’s turnkey cloud HPC platform, Boom uses computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and finite element analysis running on a massively-powerful compute infrastructure to run thousands of simulations at each stage of the design. This on-demand, zero-IT footprint has enabled them to run a lean startup operation, while at the same time simulating and optimizing high-fidelity virtual prototype models on the world’s most powerful compute clusters.

A3 Vahana image

Paris, France — Rescale is pleased to announce and its project Vahana as a groundbreaking new customer. Project Vahana is turning the dream of personal air transportation into an exciting reality. Vahana makes a bold proposal to extend the freedom of flight to everyone—not just those with pilot’s licenses—by introducing an autonomous, pilotless aircraft.

During the design phase of this vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft, has a huge design space to explore. Designers are looking for sci-fi inspired shapes, structural engineers are concerned with weight, and aerodynamicists want sleek, high-performance flight surfaces.  By facilitating on-demand simulation software and fast, scalable big compute resources, Rescale has enabled to create a huge number of virtual prototypes to cover the design space and please all stakeholders. has been able to run thousands of simulations to achieve the optimal design, all achieved with a minimal in-house IT footprint.

Richard Childress Racing(RCR)のSeth Morris、Aerodynamicist(空気力学担当)による寄稿


このことが、Richard Childress Racing(RCR)が、自身でレースカーの設計から組み立てまでをエンドツーエンドで行う理由です。私たちは、独自のシャーシとサスペンションのコンポーネントをエンジニアリングし、加工し、私たち自身のボディを設計・製造し、独自のエンジンを製造しテストします。要するに、RCRでは、すべてがを一から構築します。

Cup Shop Floor 2014

おそらくそれが私たちの48年の歴史の中で成功した理由です。私たちのオーナー、Richard ChildressがNASCARのレーサーとしてスタートした1969年にさかのぼります。それ以来、私たちは17回のチャンピオンシップと200回のレースで優勝し、NASCARトップツアーシリーズの3つすべてで勝利した最初のチームになりました。 Richardと、伝説に残るドライバーDale Earnhardtとのパートナーシップにより、RCRは1986年から1994年までの期間に6回のCup Seriesのチャンピオンシップを誇るエリート組織となりました。
