Aerodynamic CFD Simulations in the Advania HPCFLOW Cloud

An UberCloud Case Study

This case study shows how ADC’s HPCFLOW computing resources allowed MantiumCAE to create a CFD simulation quickly and efficiently for the Silvermine 11SR sportscar. To achieve this, MantiumCAE set up a CAE computing environment in Advania’s HPCFLOW cloud where simulations could be carried out quickly and efficiently.

A typical external vehicle aerodynamics simulation needs between 2.000 and 10.000 CPU core hours to be processed. Processing this simulation would take weeks to run on a 16-core workstation, but by using the HPCFLOW cloud environment together with MantiumFlow, MantiumCAE is able to deliver results within one business day.
