Scaling ANSYS-Related Workloads to Increase Performance

Manufacturers are under intense pressure to create and introduce new products on a consistent basis in order to remain competitive. Those that can conceive, develop, test and bring products to market quickly stand to realize improvements to overall business performance and profitability.

Computer-aided engineering (CAE) streamlines the product development process and drives faster time-to-market by helping manufacturers resolve design challenges, forecast real world product performance and test fewer prototypes.

Best-of-breed CAE software like ANSYS can nurture design innovation and enable faster delivery of more successful product offerings, but only if IT can scale to support a wide range of CAE applications and workloads. Continue reading

Getting Faster, Cost-effective Simulation on the Cloud

To get the most value out of engineering simulation, ANSYS customers often take advantage of high performance computing (HPC). In simple terms, HPC enables you to apply a group of computers running in parallel to solve larger problems and/or reduce the solution time for a given problem. Unlike “embarrassingly parallel” applications like genomics or graphics rendering, all of the compute cores involved in a single Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation need to communicate with each other during the solution process. That places significant demands on the network fabric used to connect the machines. Cloud computing can certainly provide computing capacity at a vast, global scale, but can it provide the desired HPC performance? Continue reading

Serious CFD Calls for Serious CFD Software

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a tool with amazing flexibility, accuracy and breadth of application. But the tools need to be properly applied in order to deliver insight and value. Nobody starts out as an expert in CFD software. Instead, we all progress from beginners to experts over time.

For example, when I first became interested in cycling, I went shopping for a new bike. I needed something better than the old junker I was riding at the time but was a bit intimidated by cycling technology. Those small, hard saddles looked plain uncomfortable! Skinny tires! And clipless pedals were a mystery. So I ended up with a “cross” bike. Continue reading

ANSYS AIM Customization Increases Opportunities for Upfront Simulation

Many companies are looking to introduce simulation upfront, as early as possible in their design processes, to bring better products to market faster and at reduced overall costs. ANSYS AIM has been developed with a view to providing unparalleled ease of use on top of ANSYS’ proven solver technology in a highly configurable and customizable way. We talked about this in our recent webinar, now available on-demand. Continue reading
