JSP: Running Ansys LS-DYNA with HPC to Boost Productivity

Are you using workstations to run your Ansys software that cannot rapidly run large models and restricts the level of modeling detail due to compute capacity and/or turnaround time limitations? Are you looking for a managed high-performance computing (HPC) resource that maximizes your engineers’ workflow and unburdens your internal IT organization?

Featuring a guest speaker from JSP, a market leader in engineering foamed products, this webinar shares expert insights on moving from workstations to a HPC workflow environment, leveraging the help of Ansys partners TotalCAE and Dell. Additionally, you will receive first-hand access to the latest Ansys LS-DYNA benchmark results and recommended cluster hardware for LS-DYNA.


Accelerate Simulation and Innovation Using Refreshed, Ready-to-Simulate Hardware

Ansys ran a large-scale study on issues that CAE engineers are facing. Due to time restrictions, engineers are often forced to reduce the size and the amount of detail in their simulation models and/or reduce the parameter space under investigation.

How can you overcome these constraints?

Join this webinar given by Ansys partner GNS Systems to learn how you can gain an additional 4 months of productivity in a year! You can do this not by using Einstein’s Relativity Theory to alter the space-time continuum, but simply by refreshing your hardware.


Debunking Myths of HPC, Cloud and Licensing

According to a recent survey, 40% of engineers limit the size or amount of detail for every simulation model due to compute capacity and turnaround time constraints. Recognizing this, smaller and mid-sized companies now seek more affordable, accessible and powerful hardware, making high-performance computing (HPC) a necessity. Nevertheless, many misconceptions still surround HPC and cloud deployment models as well as HPC and cloud licensing. These fallacies prevent adoption in product development scenarios where HPC — available on-premise and in the cloud — clearly provides a higher return on investment.

Join us for this free webinar which dispels leading misconceptions and provides insight to help you steer around possible failure points as you consider on-premise or cloud-based HPC.

  • Discover how to leverage on-demand cloud computing within structures, fluids and electronics tools to significantly reduce turnround time for compute-intensive problems.
  • Learn how to optimize the cost of your simulation usage by mixing elastic (usage-based) and traditional (lease or paid-up) licensing.
  • Receive guidance on certified remote displays and VDI solutions, as well as affordable turnkey HPC appliances that simplify on-premise HPC deployment.
  • Get tips on using the cloud to safeguard your data, cut costs and simultaneously migrate your workloads.


Cummins’ View on Speed and Agility Enabled by High Performance Computing

Attend this webinar to learn how you can reduce simulation time on increasingly complex engineering challenges in today’s fast-paced globalized economy by incorporating high-performance computing (HPC) into your virtual product development.

Guest speaker Mike Hughes, who is the program director, digital engineering/transformation at Cummins Inc., will outline a credible path to the HPC power needed for ever-expanding engineering simulation demands. The views of solution provider Dell Technologies, who along with X-ISS provide an end-to-end HPC solution for ANSYS workloads, will also be presented.

Learn How to Speed Up Your Simulations with More Powerful Servers

Are you looking for the best way to accelerate your electromagnetic, structural mechanics or fluid dynamics simulations? Or are you curious about how your simulation model would perform on a high-performance computing (HPC) system versus your existing workstation? In this webinar, we will demonstrate — with help from our free Performance Benchmark Program — how a joint ANSYS, HPE and Intel® solution offers the best return on your software and hardware investment.

With the Performance Benchmark Program, you can see the increase in speed using an HPC system on your own simulation model. Experts will help you evaluate your existing capabilities and compare them to a small HPC system. With the HPC Cluster Appliance or cloud HPC options, you get more compute power to reduce your turnaround time, investigate more design variations, run finer mesh, involve more physics and run multiple simulations simultaneously.

In addition, the webinar will provide some standard ANSYS Fluent, ANSYS CFX and ANSYS Mechanical benchmark results on the latest HPE Apollo 2000 cluster.

Understand How High-Performance Compute Can Accelerate Your Simulation Throughput

Are you limiting the size or amount of detail of simulation models due to compute capacity and/or turnaround time limitations? Many engineers and designers are wasting time and effort in reducing a model’s size or complexity to be able to run simulations on computers constrained by the performance, memory, and storage limits of a single system. Advances in ANSYS 18, combined with the latest generation of HPC products, provide a viable, affordable solution.

Join us to see how Hewlett Packard Enterprise puts HPE Apollo Systems and ANSYS 18 to the test. You will receive first-hand access to the latest benchmark results and the recommended configurations to achieve similar results. Learn from HPE and ANSYS partners Dasher Technologies and X-ISS about the benefits their customers have realized from implementing similar HPC configurations.
