Cluster Computing for Engineering

By DE Editors

An Introduction to Cluster Computing

What is Workstation-Centered Computing?
With engineering workgroups using multi-core workstations configured as LAN clusters, the performance of analysis, simulation and visualization applications improves exponentially. Hardware installation and software adaptation are easier on standard CPU systems. Working on large, complex assemblies, parametric edits can be regenerated quickly, without having to decouple them into sub-assemblies. This also means fewer errors. The CAD model s geometry can stay intact while computations move at blazing speeds.

Clusters Fill the Compute Gap
Engineers are increasingly turning to compute clusters for faster and less expensive analysis and simulation efforts.


Cluster Computing Benefits

High Performance Computing (HPC)Put Your Idle Computing Cores to Work
HSMWorks, a Gold-certified CAM program for SolidWorks users, can work in a distributed computing environment. That doesn t mean you need a supercomputer to run the software. HSMWorks can identify and call upon the idle computing cores in your networked computers. Essentially, it assembles a virtual supercomputer from these unused cores.

What’s Behind Digital Prototyping
With the help of fast and powerful engineering workstations and clusters, digital prototyping can dramatically shorten product design time.

Optimize Your Design Investments
Optimization can reduce product development time and cost, improve quality, and can move a company from delivering an adequate product into the realm of delivering an optimal product.

Optimizing OpenFOAM Productivity in Clusters
Study concludes cost savings and higher productivity by using properly configured HPC clusters.

On-Demand Computing with Altair’s PBS Works
Tapping into private and public high performance computing systems.

Server Clusters: Flexible Performance
Clusters can provide much of the performance of a supercomputer costing much more, if you choose your systems and software right.

Fast Track to Flight
ADFS partners with several HPC providers to build a better flight simulator.

Finding the Speed for Multiple Designs
How to simulate multiple design scenarios in high-performance computing environments.

Clusters Optimized for CAE
HPC solutions are Intel Cluster ready and preconfigured for ANSYS analyses.

High Performance Computing (HPC)Cluster Computing Trends

The HPC Revolution
Whereas single-core computing usually confines you to simulating one design scenario at a time, you may be able to run several variations of the same scenario simultaneously using the multicore/many core computing paradigm.

Evolution of High-Performance Computing
We live in a Golden Age of design engineering on powerful desktop computers.

What’s Missing in Analysis-Driven Design
Intel and the ISV community are working to close the gap in analysis driven design.
