Finite Element Analysis Group

In the Finite Element Analysis group you can read about your colleagues’ projects and contact them through the forums. Below are our featured finite element analysis projects on HPC as a service; perhaps you will find some that are in your area of interest. If not you can see a list of all of our projects or create your own using the buttons at the bottom of this page.

Team 1: Heavy Duty Abaqus Structural Analysis Using HPC in the Cloud

team1b

Abaqus/Explicit and Abaqus/Standard are the major application solvers for this project – they provide the driving force behind using HPC cloud to address the need for sudden demand in compute. The applications in this experiment range from solving anchorage tensile capacity and steel and wood connector load capacity, to special moment frame cyclic pushover analysis.

Team 22: Optimization Study of Side Door Intrusion Bars

team-22a

A research on optimization techniques was conducted and a novel approach has been developed. To evaluate optimization scores, each model is subjected to a finite element analysis. A case study was designed and for its execution, high power computing resources were required. A cluster was utilized to analyze a large number of moderately sized jobs. Preprocessing was done locally, but the post-processing was done remotely, although no visualization was required. The FEA for this “optimization study of side door intrusion bars” job was solved using the ABAQUS Standard solver.

Team 26: Development of Stents for a Narrowed Artery

team-22a

This project focused on simulating stent deployment using SIMULIA’s Abaqus/Standard solver and the Remote Visualization Software from NICE to run Abaqus/CAE on SGI’s Cyclone Cloud. The intent was to determine the viability of shifting similar work to the cloud during periods of full-utilization of in-house compute resources.

Team 30: Coupled Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer Simulations

team-30b

In many engineering problems fluid dynamics is coupled with heat transfer and many other multiphysics scenarios. The simulation of such problems in real cases produces large numerical models to be solved, so that big computational power is required in order for simulation cycles to be affordable. For SME industrial companies in particular it is hard to implement this kind of technology in-house, because of its investment cost and the IT specialization needed.

Team 47: Heavy Duty Abaqus Structural Analysis using HPC in the Cloud – Round 2

team1b

In Round 1 of the UberCloud HPC Experiment, the team established that indeed computational use cases could be submitted successfully using the resource provider’s cloud API and infrastructure.
The objective of this Round 2 was to explore the following:
• How can the end user experience be improved? For example, how could the post processing of HPC CAE results (kept in the cloud) be viewed at the remote desktop?
• Was there any impact of the security layer on the end user experience?
