ANSYS, NVIDIA Deliver GPU-Accelerated Fluid Dynamics Solver

Collaboration develops solution that dramatically speeds up simulation of large multiphysics models

ANSYS users can now leverage NVIDIA graphics processing units (GPUs) to speed up fluid dynamics simulation and quickly handle large, complex simulation models.
Available for the first time with ANSYS Fluent 15.0, the jointly developed GPU-accelerated commercial computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solver broadens support for NVIDIA GPUs across the ANSYS simulation portfolio, building upon the previous success with GPU support in ANSYS Mechanical.

ANSYS’ technology leadership in HPC scale-up and NVIDIA’s best-in-class hardware come together to augment traditional multi-core central processing unit (CPU) parallel computing with GPU accelerator technology. One customer taking advantage of this new solver is Parametric Solutions Inc., which specializes in the design, manufacture, test and assembly of gas turbine components and modules.

“By adding NVIDIA GPU accelerators, our engineers cut the time for typical ANSYS Mechanical models in half, doubled the performance of maxed out CPU systems and often saved an entire day’s worth of work,” said David Cusano, chief technology officer and vice president of Parametric Solutions Inc.

“Customers get better, higher performance simulations to address their most difficult computational challenges thanks to our close work with ANSYS,” said Andrew Cresci, GM (Manufacturing Industries), NVIDIA. “By adding support for GPU acceleration in ANSYS Fluent, customers can run complex simulations considerably faster, leading to higher quality and more efficient designs for planes, cars, electrical devices and a range of other products.”
