ACUSIM will debut AcuSolve on Windows HPC Server 2008 at the ACUSIM Energy Day for Offshore Oil Platform and Wind Turbine Simulation, taking place Nov. 6, 2008 at Microsoft Building in Houston.

“Performance, stability, ease of deployment and maintainability are very important to HPC customers,” said Vince Mendillo, director of HPC at Microsoft. “We are working closely with ACUSIM to give our customers the major benefits of AcuSolve on the Windows HPC Server 2008 platform.”

A general-purpose, finite element-based CFD solver, AcuSolve integrates seamlessly with CAE design and analysis applications to excel at solving complex multidisciplinary design problems involving coupled fluid flow and structural phenomena. The addition of Windows HPC Server 2008 support presents a powerful and scalable solution to Windows-based CAE users from desktops to workgroups.

“Our customers need a solution that will solve the most challenging CFD problems quickly and accurately,” said Farzin Shakib, CEO of ACUSIM. “We designed AcuSolve to resolve these issues efficiently as they can directly impact productivity and the overall product design. Now, our customers have the right tools to combat these mission critical problems in the familiar look and feel of a Windows desktop environment.”

Windows HPC Server 2008 combines the power of the Windows Server 2008 with rich, out-of-the-box functionality to help improve the productivity and reduce the complexity of the HPC environment. Testing shows that with AcuSolve running on Windows HPC cluster, CAE users are able to obtain great scalability and performance while offering a familiar path for users to apply more computing power as needed.

AcuSolve is also available on Windows XP, Windows Vista, UNIX and Linux desktop computers, as well as the traditional UNIX or Linux-based HPC clusters and Symmetric Multiprocessing (SMP) systems.
