Is MDX the Future of Engineering Simulation?


“By adopting an MDX philosophy, engineers are able to test designs automatically from the early concept stages and against all of the physical factors that might influence a system’s performance. It assesses which set of design parameters will break a system, and which will improve it. This pushes back the simulation process to force engineers to question every assumption they have made within a design, and optimise it appropriately by assessing a simulation with multiple operating scenarios.”

Pointwise Improves Mesh Generation Capabilities


Pointwise has announced the latest release of its meshing software featuring new native interfaces to computational fluid dynamics codes.

Intelligent Light: Breaking the Disk IO Bottleneck in CFD by Eliminating It


“FieldView products and services from Intelligent Light have been specifically developed to help CFD users get more reliable results in less time from their CFD investments. Post-processing can be the most important step in the CFD process -this is where the “pay off” occurs – where you gain insight and make decisions. Yet it is often overlooked when planning effective CFD workflows.”

US Air Force Awards Pointwise $1.2 Million CFD Contract


Pointwise, a software company specializing in grid generation and pre-processing software for computational fluid dynamics (CFD), has been awarded a two-year, $1.2 million contract from the US Air Force Materiel Command, part of the Arnold Engineering Development Complex (AEDC), located at Arnold Air Force Base, Tennessee.

Allinea Forge Sparks Convergent Science Combustion Simulation


Convergent Science reports that the company has adopted the Allinea Forge development tool suite. As the leader in internal combustion engine (ICE) simulation, Convergent Science is using Allinea to increase the capability and performance of the company’s CONVERGE software.

Obama Establishes National Strategic Computing Initiative


Today President Obama issued an Executive Order establishing the National Strategic Computing Initiative (NSCI) to ensure the United States continues leading high performance computing over the coming decades.

Speeding Up CFD Codes with Allinea Performance Reports


In this video from ISC 2015, Mark O’Connor demonstrates how the Allinea Performance Reports tool enables coders to speed up hydro, a real-world CFD code. “Allinea Performance Reports are the most effective way to characterize and understand the performance of HPC application runs. One single-page HTML report elegantly answers a range of vital questions for any HPC site.”

Intelligent Light Scales CFD Code to 64,000 Cores


Today Intelligent Light announced breakthrough CFD scalability running the AVF-Leslie combustion simulation code on up to 64,000 cores on NERSC supercomputers.

Reducing Jet Noise with Large Eddy Simulations


Over at Argonne National Lab, John Spizzirri writes that GE researchers are using the Mira supercomputer to learn how noise propagates from jet propulsion and wind turbine systems. The team, lead by Umesh Paliath and Giridhar Jothiprasad, is studying the complex behavior of air as it passes through jet exhaust nozzles and over wind turbine blades.

Scaling STAR-CCM+ to 55,000 Cores on Hornet

Hornet Supercomputer

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.
