The Value of High-Performance Computing for Simulation

This white paper breaks down the costs and time savings associated with implementing high-performance computing technology.

High-performance computing (HPC) is an enormous part of the present and future of engineering simulation. HPC allows best-in-class companies to gain high-fidelity insight into product behavior, insight that cannot be obtained without the detailed simulation models – including more geometric detail, larger systems, and more complex physics. When applied to design exploration that enables a product development organization to explore how a design will behave across a range of real-world operating conditions, HPC can lead to robust product performance, and reduced warranty and maintenance costs.
