One fifth of a full wheel configuration was simulated for a complete revolution and carried out to convergence on a 40 processor cluster in EC2. Results were turned around in just 72 hours with computing infrastructure costs well below $1,000. Additionally, time accurate analysis revealed critical insights that were not detected using traditional analysis techniques--most notably a 2% drop in efficiency relative to conventional 3D multi-stage steady predictions.
With Amazon EC2, ADS demonstrated that large scale unsteady simulation can be dialed up on-demand and performed affordably and within the time constraints of commercial design.
