Print version Email story Tweet story
News Using HPC (high performance computing) to solve Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) challenges has become common practice. As the growth from HPC workstation to supercomputer has slowed over the last decade or two, compute clusters have increasingly taken the place of single, big SMP (shared memory processing) supercomputers, and have become the 'new normal'. Another, more recent innovation, the cloud, has also enabled dramatic growth in total throughput.

This Amazon Web Services blog post highlights best practices for setting up an AWS HPC instance for running CFD (ANSYS Fluent in particular).
