Software provides CAE users with a CFD solution in Windows HPC environment.

ACUSIM Software, a provider of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software for engineers and scientists, announced that AcuSolve, the company's flagship solver, now supports Microsoft Windows HPC Server 2008, a server-operating system designed for the high-performance computing (HPC) market. This announcement gives computer-aided engineering (CAE) users access to a scalable, accurate, and performance-driven CFD solution in the familiar Windows HPC environment, the company reports.

"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."

According to the company, the general-purpose, finite-element-based CFD solver integrates with CAE design and analysis applications to solve complex multidisciplinary design problems involving coupled fluid flow and structural phenomena.

"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."

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.
