Across the spectrum of CAE simulation workloads in manufacturing, two compelling trends stand out:
CAE Simulation in a Petaflop Computing World
With Cray's Manufacturing Segment Leader, Greg Clifford
Gregory A. Clifford
Manufacturing Segment Leader, Cray Inc.
Model complexity continues to increase.
This increase in complexity combined with a growing number of simulations is driving a huge demand for more compute power.
We’re seeing similar demand and results whether the simulations are automotive crash; fluid dynamics; or noise, vibration and harshness (NVH). Improved results are not due solely to advances in the algorithms of leading simulation packages, nor are they simply the result of denser and more powerful computing platforms. It’s the improvement in both software and the underlying compute systems that’s allowing research and design teams at leading manufacturers to meet the growing demands of today’s complex and dynamic simulation requirements.
How demands for increasingly complex and larger simulations are driving organizations to reassess their use of traditional high performance computing (HPC) environments.
Model size and simulation trends for leading-edge CAE environments.
How the latest hardware and software HPC technology is positively impacting “time to result” in CFD, impact/crash simulation and NVH simulation.
