Today D3 Applied Technologies announced that the company has selected CIARA Technologies of Montreal as their primary technology systems provider. D3 Applied Technologies will make use of the CIARA products for doing high fidelity computational fluid dynamics simulations in order to enable engineers to predict the performance and optimize their products providing as well a greater insight into previously hard to study areas.
The computational fluid dynamics, CFD, simulations we run at D3 are very high resolution and therefore extremely demanding,” said Gonzalo Redondo, CEO of D3 Applied Technologies. “Thanks to CIARA, the time required to converge them has been reduced by a factor of four by making use of our NEXXUS C cluster featuring InfiniBand and SSD disks. Thanks to the integrated liquid cooling there is no need for external air conditioning units that would increase power demand significantly. It is still fascinating looking at it knowing this piece of hardware has become our best wind tunnel.”
Redondo founded D3 Applied Technologies in 2012. With know-how acquired as design members of America’s Cup and Volvo Ocean Race design teams, the company already has a well-established portfolio in the maritime industry. Read the Full Story.
