Case Study: CFD Simulation in Autodesk Cloud

This Webinar which took place July 31 2014 presents the UberCloud Experiment Team 142: Simulation has the potential to accelerate product development, yet in some cases computational demands make large scale tests and comparisons impractical. Many engineers are looking to the cloud for on demand, elastic computing capacity that can be applied to these problems to virtually test and optimize their designs faster and more efficiently.

Autodesk Simulation in the Cloud


In this webinar, we have a look at a real life case study where Mark A. Lobo, P.E. from Lobo Engineering PLC used cloud computing to simulate a severe service control valve with Autodesk’s cloud-enabled Simulation CFD software. Mark has thirty years of experience in industrial product engineering with special focus on control valve design and application. During the course of this project, he sent over 200 simulation scenarios to the cloud for solution. Flow data was collected for six control positions of a representative control valve and ten combinations of pressure drop for each position. This project required one license that supported both local solving on the end user’s workstation and solving on the cloud. Using the elastic computing capacity of the cloud, simulations were solved in parallel to dramatically reduce total compute time. In this case the cloud compute option demonstrated the potential to reduce the total solve time from several weeks down to a day.

In this session Mark talks about his application and the end-to-end process of preparing the application on his workstation, sending the data set to the Autodesk cloud, performing the many simulations, getting the data back to his workstation, and finally performing the visualization and evaluation of the results. Jon den Hartog, Autodesk Sr. Product Line Manager, will explain the software, resources, and support provided along the way.
