The use of in-situ analysis tools by EXCELLERAT

The use of in-situ analysis tools by EXCELLERAT Paraview-Catalyst is widely used to perform in-situ visualisation, for example the OpenFOAM and Code-Saturne HPC codes have successfully used this software. In order to use Catalyst, a given code should be prepared. First, an appropriate version of Paraview-Catalyst must be available on the computer system on which […]

High-performance computing challenge: How can engineers effectively leverage HPC technology?

High-performance computing challenge: How can engineers effectively leverage HPC technology? When developing or improving products, engineers face the challenge of analysing complex simulations to test their designs. High-performance computing (HPC) is used to solve major problems in engineering by performing demanding operations such as simulations relatively quickly. Also, by processing more precise operations, HPC can […]
