Charging Simulation with HPC Charging Simulation with HPC
When it became clear during the optimization of traction motors at General Motors that a desktop solution was inadequate, there was no proof that a large-scale HPC system would deliver enough payback. It then became the GM team’s goal to build a simple system that could provide major performance improvements without the expense of a full-blown HPC system. The resulting system is a great model for companies that are new to HPC to achieve significant performance increases with little or no hardware expense.

Full Story
  To learn more about traction motor design and optimization using a high-performance compute farm attend the IEEE Spectrum webcast on February 20 with Bradley W. Smith from GM and Scott Stanton of ANSYS.

Converge Conferences Convergence: 2013 Regional Conferences
Register for the ANSYS Convergence conference at a location near you to share simulation experiences, best practices, and tips and tricks while gaining insight into ANSYS product roadmaps and overall strategy. In addition to locations in the U.S.A. and Europe, venues in South America and India have been announced.

John O'Halloran Upfront Design for Wind Turbines
Since physical prototyping on such a large scale is not possible Suzlon, the fifth largest supplier of wind turbines worldwide, needs to work through design challenges upfront using simulation. John O'Halloran, president of technology and Kanagarajan Thangarasu, senior engineer CAD, explain how ANSYS software allows the company to obtain reliable, accurate results in a short amount of time and this in turn helps to drive down costs.

Injector Dynamics Assumptions and Their Impact on Predicting Cavitation and Performance
Internal fluid dynamics of diesel engine fuel injectors can have a major impact on engine performance by affecting spray patterns, which in turn influence combustion performance and emissions. In this web event hosted by Automotive Engineering, Dr. Frank Husmeier, cavitation investigator leader at Cummins Fuel Systems will describe his use of ANSYS CFD and HPC to improve performance.
