Simulate larger designs with more parameters in far less time

With the ANSYS HPC software suite, you can use today’s multicore computers to perform more simulations in less time.These simulations can be bigger, more complex and more accurate than ever using HPC. The various ANSYS HPC licensing options let you scale to whatever computational level of simulation you require, from single-user or small user group options for entry-level parallel processing up to virtually unlimited parallel capacity. For large user groups, ANSYS facilitates highly scalable, multiple parallel processing simulations for the most challenging projects when needed. Apart from parallel computing, ANSYS also offers special product solutions for parametric computing, which enables you to more fully explore the design parameters (size, weight, shape, materials, mechanical properties, etc.) of your product early in the development process.

HPC enhances your engineering productivity by accelerating your simulation throughput. Building on a sustained investment in HPC software innovation and development, ANSYS solutions are engineered for scalability, so you can apply simulation at the appropriate level of detail, whether for simple initial design studies or highly detailed optimization work.

HPC also gives you higher-fidelity insight into product performance — insight that cannot be gained any other way because HPC allows you to simulate larger, more complex models (and even systems) so that more accurate design decisions can be made throughout the development process.

HPC also enables you to consider more design ideas and make efficient product development decisions based on enhanced understanding of performance trade-offs. Using the combination of ANSYS Workbench with parallel and parametric HPC solutions from ANSYS, you can simultaneously evaluate multiple, automated parametric design variations over a range of operating conditions within an industrially acceptable time. Combining our design of experiments (DOE), Six Sigma and optimization tools with HPC solutions from ANSYS, you can determine which design parameters require the tightest quality control, and reach an optimal design that works across a range of operating conditions.
