How OpenFOAM® + POWER8 races past x86 in vehicle CFD simulation

The whole purpose of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is to increase design efficiency and innovation. It’s about being able to test more designs, more easily and accurately, in less time than with traditional methods. In other words, CFD simulation run times are very important. More speed and power means you can try out more designs […]

From CFD bottlenecks to champagne pops with OpenFOAM® and POWER8

It’s fitting that an ideal solution to computational fluid dynamics (CFD) bottlenecks is named ‘OpenFOAM’. Because discovering the benefits of faster and more efficient CFD simulations, running on IBM POWER8 servers, can lead to champagne-popping moments for design teams. Last time I talked about the many industries that use CFD simulation to test new product […]

Saving lives, alleviating climate impact, and improving product safety – the importance of computational fluid dynamics

Sounds impressive doesn’t it? Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is the analysis of systems involving fluid flow, heat transfer and associated phenomena such as chemical reactions, by means of computer-based simulation. We’ve been working with a number of customers to supercharge their CFD modelling so here’s the first of three blogs looking at the benefits and […]
