Simmetrix Extends Multi-Threaded and Distributed Parallel Mesh Generation Capabilities
CLIFTON PARK, NY, July 23,2009 -- Simmetrix Inc., a leading provider of component software for simulation-based design and CAD/CAE integration, today announced Simulation Modeling Suite support of extended capabilities in the area of parallel mesh generation.
Increasing mesh requirements for simulation models have resulted in a need for mesh generation to better take advantage of advancing computing environments. These computing environments may range from multi-core desktop systems to HPC clusters.
The Simulation Modeling Suite provides a unique architecture for providing parallel meshing capabilities for both multi-threaded applications and MPI based applications for distributed memory parallel applications. This unique approach does not rely on “hard” geometric partitioning or on subdivision of the domain into a large number of parts. The ability of this approach to address a single complex volume lends itself well to far field applications such as Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Computational Electro-Magnetics (CEM), and Computational Aero-Acoustics (CAA).
“We have seen a significant reduction of meshing time on multi-core systems due to the multi-threaded mesh generation now available from Simmetrix”, says Craig Brett, Sr. Software Developer at Infolytica Corporation. “We plan to use this advanced meshing functionality along with our multi-threaded solver functionality to provide our customers the best possible performance on multi-core systems.”
The multi-threaded and MPI based parallel meshing capabilities are provided through the MeshSim and Parallel MeshSim modules of the Simulation Modeling Suite. The Simulation Modeling Suite provides a toolkit approach for simulation modeling with an object oriented API interface, and is currently licensed by a broad range of commercial independent software vendors and internal development organizations.
