Utilizing ANSYS HPC - ANSYS e-Learning

Today, most desktop computers come with at least 8 CPU cores out of the box. In recent years, ANSYS has made significant strides in allowing its users to take maximum advantage of this increased computing capability. The various ANSYS High Performance Computing (HPC) licensing options allow scalability to whatever computational level may be required for a given simulation.

ANSYS software effectively leverages current hardware configurations to improve execution on multiple cores and Graphical Processing Units (GPU). The use of HPC can lead to improved simulation accuracy by permitting larger and more complex models to be solved in a reasonable amount of time. HPC can vastly improve turnaround times for smaller, parametrically-driven projects by dedicating the same hardware to solve a large number of simultaneous problems.

This e-Learning session focuses on concepts such as shared vs. distributed memory parallel processing and GPU acceleration for ANSYS Mechanical and ANSYS CFX/Fluent, along with recommended hardware configurations based on recent computer technology advancements.  We demonstrate how to activate HPC in ANSYS Workbench and show you how to make the best use of the multiple cores on your computers.
