Petaflops for Simulation
Computer simulation is the process of mathematical modelling, performed on a computer, which is designed to predict the behaviour of and/or the outcome of a real-world or physical system.
Computer simulations have become a useful tool for the mathematical modelling of many natural systems in physics (computational physics), astrophysics, climatology, chemistry, biology and manufacturing,
as well as human systems in economics, psychology, social science, health care and engineering. Simulation of a system is represented as the running of the system's model.
They can be used to explore and gain new insights into new technology and to estimate the performance of systems too complex for analytical solutions.
Recent innovations in GPU technologies have multiplied computer performance allowing more accurate modelling of weather, climate change, fluid dynamics, molecular dynamics and more.
Nvidia has a library of containers to install on your GPU-enabled high-performance compute server to accelerate your model development and to visualise the results.
If you use this software than a massive improvement in your simulation project is available by implementing GPU-accelerated Compute hardware and the Nvidia NGC container.
If you don’t use this software then there are still a number of ways to GPU-accelerate your simulation software.
