Seminar Overview
NVIDIA Graphic Processor Units (GPUs) technology is increasingly used to accelerate compute-intensive HPC applications across various disciplines in the scientific and engineering communities. OpenFOAM® simulations can require a significant amount of computing time which can potentially lead to higher simulation costs. Enabling faster research and discovery using CFD is of key importance, and GPU technology can help speed up simulations and accelerate science.
