ANSYS users can now leverage NVIDIA Graphics Processing Units (NGPUs) to speed up fluid dynamics simulation and swiftly handle large, complex simulation of multiphysics models. Available with ANSYS Fluent 15.0, the jointly developed GPU-accelerated commercial Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) solver broadens support for NGPUs across the ANSYS simulation portfolio. Complex CFD simulations can be accelerated, especially when paired with new, higher performance NVIDIA Tesla K40 GPU accelerators.

ANSYS is investing deeply in GPUs as an emerging and powerful technology and this is the reason it has expanded its GPU support with NVIDIA through new high-performance computing licensing that takes advantage of both Central Processing Units (CPUs) and GPUs. Customers can now apply GPUs to speed up fluid dynamics, structural mechanics, and electromagnetic simulations – expanding the value of ANSYS HPC capabilities.

Customers get better, higher performance simulations to address their most difficult computational challenges thanks to our close work with ANSYS,” said Andrew Cresci, general manager, manufacturing industries at 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.”

DesignCon award

ANSYS has won the DesignCon 2014 DesignVision Award for the Integrated Circuit (IC) Design Tools category for its ANSYS PathFinder-D technology. The automotive industry makes use of the company’s software products for engineering simulation in the design process that puts a virtual product through a rigorous testing procedure.

A comprehensive layout-based electro-static discharge (ESD) integrity solution, PathFinder is used by custom IC designers because it helps identify weak areas of the design in layout or circuit that could potentially cause ESD failures.

It’s with great pride that ANSYS accepts recognition from DesignCon for the third consecutive year,” said

As electronics products become smaller and smarter, ensuring design reliability has become increasingly challenging,” said Norman Chang, vice president and senior product strategist at ANSYS subsidiary Apache. This DesignVision award underscores the company’s commitment to provide higher technology to the electronics industry, he added.

DesignVision award winners were selected based on three criteria – how well the product met customer needs, originality of the solution offered and the quality of implementation in meeting market requirements.

As proponents of engineering simulation ANSYS employs professionals with expertise in engineering fields such as finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, electronics and electromagnetics, and design optimization. ANSYS has more than 75 strategic sales locations throughout the world with a network of channel partners in more than 40 countries.
