Ever-increasing design complexity and shortened time-to-market requirements compel today’s Computer Fluid Dynamics software to tackle the largest problems with both efficiency and accuracy. At the same time, CFD solutions must support a high degree of parallel scalability.
“Computer Fluid Dynamics simulations are notoriously computationally intensive,”explains Farzin Shakib, Vice President, CFD Technology, Altair Engineering, Inc. ” Along with robustness and accuracy, great parallel performance and scalability are keys for solving large CFD problems.”
For this project, the technical support team at Intel helped Altair to diagnose one of the parallel bottlenecks in AcuSolve and to test the improved method. Intel® software development tools were used to help identify areas for improvement, resulting in an increase in performance and scalability.
