High-Performance Computing for Mechanical Simulations Using ANSYS
From 2012 Automotive Simulation World Congress:
FEA simulations continue to increase in complexity. For faster turnaround times, especially for complex simulations involving models with complicated physics and highly refined meshes, engineers must consider high-performance computing (HPC). HPC involves understanding both leading-edge hardware solutions and how FEA software can leverage such hardware. For mechanical simulations, ANSYS technologies allow users to take full advantage of multiple-core processors, graphics cards (GPUs), solid-state hard drives (SSDs), clusters, etc., all in an effort to minimize time to solution.
