In this white paper, we will show that the IBM Power architecture provides a uniquely powerful platform for computational fluid dynamic simulations, in particular when combined with the open source OpenFOAM application and OCF’s unique integration and support services.

Illustrative benchmark results are provided in this document as proof points.

If you are engaged in the fields of engineering and science, whether from a commercial or and academic perspective, and have requirement to simulate fluid flows, you will gain a deeper understanding of the benefits that OCF’s OpenFOAM on POWER8 package can deliver.
