Electric Ant Lab

Panamalaan 4, 1019 AZ Amsterdam, Netherlands

Electric Ant Lab is an independent private research laboratory providing contract research consulting and simulation services in the field of rheology and transport of complex fluids.

Key Facilities

Scientific Modelling Support
They have strong expertise in translating natural or technical systems into mathematical models and efficient numerical implementations. They can support other modellers in this endeavour.

Stand-Alone Simulation Services
Next to consulting they develop stand-alone simulation tools that can be accessed bythird parties. These services provide access to their models and HPC resources.

HPC Software Engineering
Parallel computing is an indispensible tool in modelling and simulations of complexsystems. Their codes are targetted at a range of execution environments, from multi-coreworkstations to national supercomputers with thousands of CPUs and many accelerators.They can also assist others in porting their algorithms to parallel architectures andimproving their performance.
