Cloud-Enabled CAE Solutions: Requirements, Basic Concepts and Usability

Up-to-date, particularly commercial methods of numerical simulation are able to meet requirements of modern product development and optimisation processes. However, essential prerequisite is not only the application software but also the appropriate High Performance Computing (HPC) resources. Specific applications, like simulation of large models with a very high number of grid points, CFD-driven design optimisation with necessary innumerable variations as well as complex, multidisciplinary problems regarding the simulation of iterative interactive effects are typical examples of getting efficient, high-quality, prompt and precise results only through appropriate High Performance Computing.
