HPC Productivity - Tearing Down the Barriers to HPC for CAE Simulation

SESSION: Tuesday HPC Impact Showcase Presentations

EVENT TYPE: HPC Impact Showcase & Emerging Technologies

TIME: 11:00AM - 11:40AM


Speaker(s):Roger Rintala, Steve Legensky

ROOM:Show Floor - 233 Theater


Engineering users are well aware of the familiar hurdles of exploiting HPC: Generating data faster than it can be evaluated, software scalability, licensing policies that limit production deployment and the need to keep internal resources working on tasks that are “on mission” for the organization.

Learn how Corvid Technologies, an engineering services and software provider, and longtime user of HPC, is delivering high quality, CAE-driven engineering for applications where accuracy and timeliness are critical. They are using the DoE’s ultra-scalable, open source VisIt software with their highly scalable Velodyne solver to overcome the obstacles to HPC faced by many in the engineering community.

The use of VisIt brought with it some new challenges common with open source software. Corvid turned to Intelligent Light to provide them with professional support and some custom VisIt development that helped them complete their workflow and ensure that VisIt is meeting their HPC-enabled engineering needs. This development work produced multiple improvements to the VisIt codebase that have been contributed to the VisIt repository so they may benefit other VisIt users.

Intelligent Light, the US Department of Energy, and users like Corvid are bringing down the barriers to the growth of HPC and improving the ROI on HPC-enabled CAE. They are doing so in ways that protect the choices of users and the investments they make in their simulations.
