The automotive industry has recognized that simulation in key disciplines such as crash worthiness, noise and vibration, and fluid mechanics has matured to a high level. The decision is no longer about whether to use virtual technologies, but rather how to more effectively take advantage of these technologies to reduce time-to-market, lower development costs, and to support innovation. To further this technology, the Victorian Partnership for Advanced Computing (VPAC) developed a GPU-based algorithm (shader) that achieves a high frame rate while also interactively and immersively visualizing production-scale crash simulations.
