Extreme Scalability for High-Fidelity CFD Simulations
Are you feeling constrained by hardware when trying to reach the required fidelity of your CFD simulations within an acceptable amount of time? Do you also want to account for larger size models, more geometric detail, and more complex physics (like LES) than what is currently solvable in your (already) high-end compute environment? CFD models of over 100 million cells are now increasingly common, and models of over a billion cells are emerging. To meet the demand for 10 to 100 times larger models the simulations will have to scale to 10 to 100 times more cores. Hence, the “capability” of the compute environment must be enhanced, not just the “capacity”. This webinar will review the efforts by Cray, Inc. and ANSYS, Inc. to scale production models to thousands of cores and provide the overall compute environment required to take CFD simulations to the next level of extreme fidelity.
