High‐Performance Computing for Mechanical Simulations using ANSYS
Engineering simulations involving finite elements continue to become increasingly complex. Engineers seeking a means to improve turnaround times for complex simulations, especially those involving models with complicated physics and highly refined meshes, 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 offers various technologies which 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 the time to solution.
