CST – Computer Simulation Technology

Getting Ahead with High Performance Computing in CST STUDIO SUITE

Recording date: March 19, 2015

60 min



Modern development cycles are becoming ever shorter, while at the same time, engineers find themselves confronted with increasingly complex systems. As an essential tool in the product development process, this means that CST® STUDIO SUITE® is faced with ever more demanding tasks. The increasing requirements are most visible in the growing size of simulation models (system simulation instead of component simulation), which must be calculated efficiently, but also in the increasingly fragmented structure of companies and teams and the centralization of computing capacity in clusters. This webinar shows the high-performance computing (HPC) methods that help CST STUDIO SUITE rise to these challenges.

In this webinar, the different hardware-based acceleration options will be demonstrated and illustrated with simulation examples from various application areas. The range of configurations that will be discussed runs from the acceleration of standard workstations and servers through specialized GPUs and co-processors, through to high-end solutions using cluster systems. Recent developments in CST STUDIO SUITE will be presented and discussed, including the optimization at the software-level and support for new hardware. In addition, helpful tips will be given about the choice and procurement of new hardware to help make the most of the investment in new systems.

A significant challenge that engineers often have to face when using high-end (cluster) systems is that they are not very user-friendly and often require expert HPC knowledge (scripting, use of queuing and scheduling systems, etc.). The latest version of CST STUDIO SUITE improves and simplifies the use on such systems significantly, and this webinar will present various possibilities for integration and efficient access (including remote access). It’s not always possible or practical for the investment in in-house computational resources to be realized at the right time for high-pressure projects. In particular, small and medium businesses often only need HPC on an occasional basis, and lack expertise in the use and maintenance of HPC systems. In these cases, cloud computing makes it possible to access the necessary computing resources on a short-term basis. The possibilities to use CST STUDIO SUITE in the cloud will also be discussed in this webinar.
