Our project’s CFD effort will quickly experience computational bottlenecks. Currently a rather simple CFD simulation is taking a few hours on a decent laptop. By employing HPC, high performance computing, we can decrease the runtime of the CFD simulation.
We have licenses to Star-CCM+, one of the industry’s leading software suite for CFD analysis through Siemens sponsorship. The key here is to find a way to run the software and our desired simulation on varying underlying hardwares; as well as make it easy for CFD members to submit their jobs.
