ANSYS partners With Leading European Supercomputing Center


15 Jan 2015 Pittsburgh - Researchers from academic institutions across Europe will soon be able to perform some of the most sophisticated simulations imaginable thanks to a new partnership between ANSYS and the High Performance Computing Center (HLRS) of the University of Stuttgart in Germany.

The partnership offers researchers access to ANSYS' engineering simulation solutions on HLRS' supercomputing assets to perform demanding computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations for industrial machinery and internal combustion engine applications. Those applications require all simulation variables to be analyzed over time and space, which puts significant demands on high performance computing (HPC) power and data storage. Both applications involve developing and enhancing sophisticated simulation models that are associated with such complex phenomena as fuel injection, evaporation and fuel-wall interaction, as well as combustion and emission formation.

"In the past, academia's adoption of solutions such as those provided by ANSYS on high-end supercomputing platforms was hindered by cost. In some cases, the lack of domain expertise in applying HPC to scientific research represented an additional obstacle", stated Wim Slagter, ANSYS' lead product manager for HPC. "This partnership will remove those hurdles, demonstrate the potential of supercomputing and accelerate cutting-edge CFD research in academic labs."

This collaboration between HLRS and ANSYS supports the German government's high-tech strategy because it paves the way for optimized utilization of available HPC infrastructure, such as HLRS' petascale system, dubbed Hornet. The Cray XC40 supercomputer features the Cray Aries network and includes nearly 95,000 Intel Haswell processor cores. ANSYS solutions provide extreme scalability beyond 20,000 processor cores, enabling users to perform multiphysics, multi-scale simulations with a degree of accuracy that was previously impossible to achieve using this software.

"This partnership will help to accelerate the pace of groundbreaking research for the development of commercial products in the equipment manufacturing and automotive sectors, among others", stated Michael M. Resch, HLRS director. "As one of Europe's leading HPC centres, we are proud to have further enhanced our access to HPC technology and computational services that are secure and extremely scalable. These new capabilities enable us to strengthen one of the world's best scientific research ecosystems."
