Cray and ANSYS Give Aircraft Takeoffs a Big Lift

Cray and ANSYS tackled the high-lift simulation challenge, working together on two high-lift prediction test cases developed by the AIAA CFD High Lift Prediction Workshop (HiLiftPW). The computational results — made possible by Cray XC supercomputing power and obtained with ANSYS Fluent — showed excellent performance: a 189-million-cell simulation completed in under two hours.
