Optimizing Engineering Simulation Software for HPC

ANSYS has focused for many years on development of engineering simulation software optimized for high-performance computing (HPC). This session will highlight parallel scaling technology milestones and showcase real-world case studies highlighting the ability of HPC to solve bigger, more accurate, higher fidelity simulations. Issues and opportunities related to optimizing the IT environment for engineering simulation will also be introduced.


Barbara Hutchings manages strategic alliances at ANSYS, Inc. and has been involved in the Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) software business for nearly 30 years. Barbara also leads high-performance computing strategy at ANSYS, with the goal of helping customers get maximum benefit from their CAE investment.
