DIVISION Clean Energy Systems

Do you want challenges? Join the automotive revolution in a group that puts innovation at the heart of its strategy.

 

With 33,000 employees in 31 countries and a turnover of 8 billion euros in 2017, Plastic Omnium is the world leader in its two businesses: automotive and environment.

 

The Plastic Omnium Clean Energy Systems division is the world leader in energy storage systems. It employs 7,500 people in 36 industrial sites.

 

Our ambition? Provide automotive manufacturers with advanced equipment and solutions to develop the clean and connected car of tomorrow.

 

Context

The simulation team has developed an algorithm for the venting simulation, i.e. the calculation of volume of fuel that can be safely put in the tank if the car is parked with a slope. This calculation consists in calculating planes at different heights of fuel and different slopes of the tank. About 200 tank positions are required to evaluate one tank architecture.

 

This C++ code is then embedded in an optimization loop to calculate the venting architecture of the fuel tank.

 

Mission

In order to reduce the computation time, we want to port this code to linux (to be used on our HPC) and to a GPU card (Nvidia P6000).

 

In a second time, the intern will work on improving the optimization algorithm that is currently used.

 

Background & Skills

Programming, HPC
