Simulation software company Ansys has introduced a web-based technology that enables users to remotely access simulations. Fluent Web UI provides an interface for Ansys Fluent to support large-scale parallelization of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations by tapping into multi-GPU and cloud computing capabilities to reduce power consumption and increase simulation.
Users can run, control and monitor simulations on the cloud or on-premises high-performance computing clusters. The interface, according to Ansys, delivers insights faster for a range of CFD applications, including automotive under-hood heat transfer, gas turbine simulations and external aerodynamics for aerospace applications.
Building on the company’s cloud initiatives, Fluent Web UI can be integrated with other Ansys technology from design to validation. For instance, Ansys Discovery Burst relies on fast-scaling clusters of GPUs to facilitate early design exploration, to help designers identify optimal designs faster and reduce the need for physical prototyping.
“Our customers can leverage our native GPU solvers and AI solutions in the cloud or on premise to realize significant time-saving benefits across industry applications from automotive to aerospace,” said Shane Emswiler, senior vice president of products at Ansys.
“The seamless connectivity that Fluent Web UI will enable will help keep complex projects on track, while empowering designers to make better decisions as they monitor the simulation in real time from any device.”
