SGI Complete Solutions for CAE

Called the "Third Industrial Revolution" by The Economist, the digitization of manufacturing and the usage of HPC is revolutionizing how products are designed, tested and built

Modeling and simulation drives down costs and reduces inefficiencies, to make manufacturers much more competitive. SGI delivers a complete solution to our manufacturing customers with flexible compute and storage capabilities to fit any size project. With expertise in all the major Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) applications including ANSYS®'s FLUENT, MSC Software's MD Nastran, OpenFOAM, LSTC's LS-DYNA and SIMULIA's Abaqus, SGI has delivered innovative CAE solutions to companies such as 3M, Hamilton Sundstrand, Sikorsky, Skoda, and many others.

MSC NASTRAN explicit nonlinear (SOL 700) on advanced SGI® architektures
MSC Nastran Explicit Nonlinear (SOL 700) provides engineers a powerful structural analysis solution to model high velocity or short duration events such as impact, crash, explosions, and numerous others. During an explicit nonlinear analysis, at each time step, the MSC Nastran program couples LSTC LS-DYNA FEA structure/contact locations and velocities with forces from MSC Software's Dytran Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI) simulation.

GPU-accelerated SGI Servers Enable Department of Geosciences at Princeton University to Simulate Seismic Activity in Record Time

GPU-accelerated SGI Servers Enable Department of Geosciences at Princeton University to Simulate Seismic Activity in Record Time

NVIDIA® Tesla® GPU-powered SGI Rackable servers have been deployed in the Department of Geosciences at Princeton University to drive next-generation earthquake research. The department will utilize five main open-source software packages and is leveraging NVIDIA GPUs for the SPECFEM3D 'Sesame' application, which simulates seismic wave propagation on regional and global scales.

The installation includes 200 NVIDIA Telsa K20 GPU accelerators with four K20 GPUs per each 2U Rackable server. It enables the Department of Geosciences to report on seismic activity, via the Global Seismicity Portal, in 15-30 minutes as compared to two to eight hours previously. The portal was designed to present the public with near real-time visualizations of recent earthquakes.
