“The availability of HPC-on-Demand is opening up the world of supercomputers to expanding organizations that want to quickly take on more work and burst capacity when required. SMEs, that have never previously had access to this kind of power, can now use it on a project basis over a defined period of time and only pay for what they use. They don’t waste investment by having infrastructure running idle.”
“In aerospace, users prefer to have the option to visualize the entire system. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s something routinely done. By definition, system-level visuals involve too much data. If an engineer is trying to troubleshoot something in an analysis program, he or she will most likely analyze only the subcomponents that contribute to the problem. For example, electrical wiring information can safely be omitted when doing an airflow study of the outer surface.”
The Diesel Engine Development Department at BMW used Esteco’s ModeFrontier software to optimise the transient cooling system of one of its six-cylinder, 225kW diesel engines and to support the validation steps for the newly updated thermal model. ModeFrontier helped the BMW team create a reliable transient cooling system model, compliant with new testing guidelines. The […]
Ansys simulation software was used by the four out of the top six F1 racing teams in the 2013 season; in particular the software was used by Infiniti Red Bull Racing which won its fourth consecutive constructor’s championship. Ansys simulation software, particularly its solutions for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and high performance computing (HPC), are […]
Ansys has announced plans to acquire Reaction Design, which develops chemistry simulation software.
Display Manager is a web-based environment for remote visualization of very Big Data arising from large HPC simulations. “Display Manager eliminates the need for massive data movement across networks by leveraging NVIDIA GRID GPU’s for server side remote visualization. This represents a major milestone in the path toward complete simulation lifecycle management.” Watch the demo to see it in action.
The new AweSim project at OSC is developing an “App Store for HPC” to help manufacturers move towards virtual design and testing.
