High-Performance Computing

ANSYS solvers make use of the many compute cores now available to engineers in more than one way. Contact detection, mesh generation and solving all benefit from the additional, ever increasing core counts. Compute efforts can be split up to make short work of tasks like determining where contact interfaces should be; meshing operations can be sped up in a similar manner.
Solver operations can take the form of Shared Memory Parallel (SMP) or the often much faster Distributed Memory Parallel (DMP) type. The distributed ANSYS solver uses the available compute resources to accelerate solutions. Adding more cores makes a big impact across the workflow. You can experience speed-up even up to 1000 cores.
