Workshop - Joint ANSYS Technology Day by LRZ and CADFEM GmbH for the new ANSYS Simulation Software Release 2019 R3

Date: Wednesday, November 6,  2019, 9:00 – 17:30
Location: LRZ Building, Boltzmannstr. 1, D-85748 Garching near Munich, Seminar Room 1
Contents: On the occasion of the new 2019 R3 release of the ANSYS software, the LRZ, Garching and CADFEM GmbH, Grafing jointly present and organize an ANSYS Technology Day at the LRZ Auditorium Building. The focus of this ANSYS Technology Day will be set primarily for ANSYS Mechanical and the following topics will be highlighted:
  •     Introduction & Welcome  
  •     Selection of Update Highlights with focus on ANSYS Workbench and ANSYS Mechanical
  •     Working with faceted bodies from topology optimization or 3D scans
  •     User-defined results in ANSYS Mechanical for result evaluations with special requirements
  •     Introduction to LRZ HPC Systems and ANSYS Software on LRZ Linux Clusters and Supercomputers
  •     Discussion, questions and answers.
During the final discussion and Q&A round you potentially may want to discuss your specific computational needs, your simulation requirements using ANSYS software at the LRZ facilities, your particular ANSYS model or your simulation idea with us. All this can be discussed together with the LRZ and CADFEM lecturers and with the participants of the ANSYS Technology Day. To enable this on a higher level, please feel free to contact Dr. Cord Steinbeck-Behrens and/or Dr. Thomas Frank in advance with your particular questions or points of interest and with the possibility to provide your ANSYS CSM/CFD model to them.

Furthermore, the ANSYS Technology Day is aimed to provide all users of the ANSYS software for engineering simulations in structural mechanics (CSM), computational fluid dynamics (CFD using CFX, Fluent, Discovery AIM and Discovery Live), electro-magnetic field computation (HFSS, Maxwell-3d) as well as systems simulation a comprehensive update on a selection of new features and modeling / simulation capabilities of ANSYS latest new software release 2019 R3 (to be published in September/October 2019).

Furthermore LRZ will present on the total bandwidth of offered Linux Cluster and Supercomputer systems and high performance computing (HPC) capabilities at LRZ, which are available for the application of the ANSYS simulation software packages (and beyond). Besides the engineering simulation and HPC capabilities LRZ will give an introduction to available services and capabilities for an efficient pre- and postprocessing, i.e. mesh generation and visualization of large-scale engineering simulation results from the ANSYS software using the remote visualization systems, LRZ Compute Cloud services and the capabilities of the LRZ Virtual Reality and Visualization Center (V2C).

The jointly organized ANSYS Technology Day provides to all users of the ANSYS simulation software from Bavarian technical universities and research institutions the possibility to meet and network with the experts from CADFEM GmbH and LRZ and to discuss with them your questions regarding the efficient use of the ANSYS software and the supercomputer systems of the LRZ. The ANSYS Technology Day is aimed to be of great benefit for a broad range of ANSYS software users from the very beginner in the world of engineering simulation, parallel computation and HPC up to the experienced ANSYS software user with more specific and application oriented questions and with interest in the most recent developments in the brand new ANSYS software release 2019 R3.

After the Lecture Program at the ANSYS Technology Day the LRZ is offering the possibility of a guided tour to the LRZ computer building featuring the new SuperMUC-NG supercomputer, which is ranked in the new TOP500 list (June 2019)of world’s fastest supercomputers on rank number 9 and which is thereby the fastest supercomputer of all EU member states. Participants being interested in this guided tour to the SuperMUC-NG are kindly asked to register on this website in advance. The guided tour to SuperMUC-NG will start at approx. 4:00 pm and will last for approx. 1 hour.
