Industry Benefits of GPU-Accelerated ANSYS Software

Posey Stan - NVIDIA (USA)


Current trends in high performance computing (HPC) are moving towards the use of graphics processing units (GPUs) to achieve speed-ups for CAE simulations. GPUs have been developed exclusively for computational tasks as massively-parallel co-processors to x86 CPUs, and provide new HPC opportunities for ANSYS software. This talk will examine the GPU benefits in the application of ANSYS Mechanical and ANSYS Fluent for a selection of simulation models relevant in size and conditions to current industry-scale practice. A rapid ANSYS simulation capability from GPUs has the potential to transform current procedures in engineering analysis and design optimization.
