San Francisco, October 6, 2015 – SHIPFLOW users can now perform simulations on the Rescale cloud high performance computing (HPC) platform. This gives users the ability to immediately scale up their computer resources during computation intensive periods. Smaller organizations will also find it beneficial to use an agile, pay-on-demand pricing model that allows them to compete in the engineering and science markets without having the large capital expense of building out an internal cluster.
“Cloud computing will be beneficial for users that do not want to invest in in-house hardware for their computations, and for those that need additional computational resources during peak periods”, said Leif Broberg, managing director at FLOWTECH International AB. “Regulations by IMO to reduce the CO2 emissions from newly built ships has intensified the use of computational methods to achieve efficient hydrodynamic designs. With the short time available for the initial design, utilization of Rescale’s high-performance computing cloud can ensure that the designs are delivered on time.”
This strategic partnership allows SHIPFLOW users to take advantage of Rescale’s intuitive platform, customizable hardware, and 100,000+ core capacity to drastically accelerate their simulations, run multiple jobs in parallel, and gain valuable design insights. “We’re very excited about the recent release of SHIPFLOW on Rescale’s platform, enabling SHIPFLOW users to leverage the benefits of cloud computing and fully maximize their product innovation and development,” said Rescale CEO, Joris Poort.
FLOWTECH International AB with its product SHIPFLOW is the market leading developer and supplier of Computational Fluid Dynamics software packages for the Marine Industry. The package is designed to streamline the hull form, appendage and propulsion design process with a clear focus on optimisation in order to minimize energy consumption. Top shipyards, consultants and universities are among the SHIPFLOW users. Developed by naval architects, physicists and numerical analysts the software is optimised for ship hydrodynamics design. Specialisation means SHIPFLOW is efficient and user-friendly. Grids are automatically generated, resistance and propulsion data are presented in the naval architect’s way and the solvers are adapted for hull geometries. Over the past twenty five years SHIPFLOW has developed into the world standard for ship hydrodynamics CFD. For more information on FLOWTECH, visit www.flowtech.se.
