Six Myths of HPC for Engineering Simulation, Part II

Wim Slagter, Lead Product Manager for HPC at ANSYS

Over at the Ansys Blog, Wim Slagter has posted the second segment of his blog post six common myths about HPC for engineering simulation. “I would be really ignorant to state that it is easy to deploy and manage a HPC cluster. As a matter of fact, sizing, building, integrating, provisioning and supporting a cluster infrastructure requires highly specialized IT expertise that is often lacking users of engineering simulation software.”

Six Myths of HPC for Engineering Simulation

Wim Slagter, Lead Product Manager for HPC at ANSYS

“A decade ago, HPC may have indeed been primarily associated with big supercomputers. However, the computer industry has delivered enormous increases in computing speed and power at consistently lower costs. Think about more compute cores per CPU, integrated I/O on processor die (yielding higher memory bandwidth), more and faster memory (channels), larger L3 cache size, faster disk storage (like solid-state drives for ANSYS Mechanical), faster interconnects, AVX support, etc. Through these advances made I can counter this myth #1 by stating that HPC is today available throughout the entire computer spectrum.”

Boosting Electric Car Batteries with Simulation

“Over the past two and half years, the team worked on a DOE-funded project, Computer-Aided Engineering for Electric Drive Vehicle Batteries (CAEBAT), to combine new and existing battery models into engineering simulation software to shorten design cycles and optimize batteries for increased performance, safety and lifespan. In order to achieve these goals the team has been modeling thermal management, electrochemistry, ion transport and fluid flow.”
