Cloud-based multi-physics simulation for MEMS micro-speaker design and development

During the last two years, we participated in the EU funded project Fortissimo 2 (part of Horizon 2020) which aims to introduce high-performance-computing to SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises).

The target of the project was to use the High-Performance Cluster at the University of Stuttgart for further development of our Comsol Multiphysics FEM simulation and for a possible acceleration of the SPL and THD simulations needed in the development process.

The project finished last year in October and was quite a success, showing that we could speed up our standard simulations significantly (an SPL simulation with high resolution to predict the performance of the speaker currently takes up to 1 day, using parallelisation it can be reduced to roughly 1 hour.) Additionally, it gave us the opportunity to ramp up complexity to understand the limits of our models.
