All ANSYS Academic Research and ANSYS Academic Associate products can extend their built-in HPC capability with add-on HPC licenses:
One task of ANSYS Academic Research/Associate HPC extends the base HPC ability of any one of the physics that supports HPC that is contained in the base product. Each task adds another core.
For Structural, Thermal & Fluid Dynamics Academic products both shared & distributed memory HPC capability can be extended with our “physics neutral” HPC add-on products called ANSYS Academic Research HPC and ANSYS Academic Associate HPC. These products are sold per task and extend the HPC capability of the following solvers:
For RF & Electromagnetics Academic Products the "add-on" HPC capability enables the ANSYS HFSS domain decomposition method solver, and also allows the following solvers to run in parallel: spectral sweep and integral equation (IE) solver. The add-on products are called ANSYS Academic Research HPC HF and ANSYS Academic Associate HPC HF. The “HF” postscript identifies the fact that these add-on HPC products only apply to the HFSS “HF” solver.
