Today CD-adapco announced a significant scalability milestone for its STAR-CCM+ CFD software. Optimized over the course of a year in collaboration with HLRS and SICOS BW, STAR-CCM+ was run on the entirety of the 1.045 PetaFlop Hermit cluster, managing to maintain perfect scalability beyond 55,000 cores.
“Whereas previous generations of engineers could take some comfort in the ‘safety net’ of extensive physical testing to rescue them from the occasional poor prediction, CAE is increasingly the victim of its own success as simulation continues to displace hardware testing as industry’s verification method of choice. Although this increased confidence in simulation is well-deserved (and has been hard-earned through many years of successful prediction), it brings with it a great deal of pressure to ‘get the answer right’ every time.”
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 is being used to boost the endurance of Ferrari’s GT race cars.
