Ansys plans to offer a solution set that will enable customers to obtain enhanced insight and productivity through the expanded use of high-performance computing (HPC) with engineering simulation.

In contrast to single-point solutions that require separate licences for each solver, the new Ansys HPC products will provide a cross-physics parallel computing capability that supports structural, fluids, thermal and electromagnetics simulation in a single solution.

The new package will benefit customers who need to combine multi-physics with HPC to address complex product development challenges.

The Ansys HPC solution is intended to encourage and facilitate the use of larger-scale parallel processing for high-fidelity simulation by making it more accessible to both large and small companies.

The end result will be more detailed results and enhanced insight into product performance, according to the company.

The solution will be fully enabled with the upcoming Ansys 12.1 release and the cross-physics capability is now commercially available to customers.

Jim Cashman, president and chief executive officer, said: ‘In the past, only the largest enterprises could afford a high level of parallel processing.

‘The new Ansys HPC solution will enable users across the spectrum to consider more detailed, accurate and complete simulations than ever before, yielding the kind of detailed understanding that is critical to simulation-driven product development.

‘The new solution will have built-in flexibility so customers can use their HPC licences wherever they have computing resources and people,’ he added.

HPC increases engineering productivity by accelerating simulation throughput, enabling customers to consider more design ideas and make efficient product development decisions based on the enhanced understanding of performance trade-offs, according to the company.

The new solutions from Ansys are designed to allow customers to exploit HPC resources within a workgroup or across a distributed enterprise, using local workstations, department clusters or enterprise servers, wherever resources and people are located, removing artificial barriers to productivity.
