First Commercial GPU-Accelerated Fluid Dynamics Solver Dramatically Speeds Simulation of Large Multiphysics Models

February 12, 2014 4:25 pm | by ANSYS | News | Comments

ANSYS users can now leverage NVIDIA graphics processing units (GPUs) to speed up fluid dynamics simulation and quickly handle large, complex simulation models. Available for the first time with ANSYS Fluent 15.0, the jointly developed GPU-accelerated commercial computational fluid dynamics solver broadens support for NVIDIA GPUs across the ANSYS simulation portfolio, building upon the previous success with GPU support in ANSYS Mechanical.

Was Jupiter Once in Mars’ Position?

June 16, 2011 9:08 am | News | Comments

A new scenario describing a key step in the formation of the solar system has been proposed by researchers wherein Jupiter migrated towards the Sun to the position where Mars is today before beginning its outward migration to its current location. This is how the researchers explain the formation of the asteroid belt as well as other mysteries

Long Live the Qubit

June 7, 2011 7:37 am | by Larry Hardesty, MIT News Office | News | Comments

A quantum computer is a device that could perform some types of calculations much more rapidly than classical computers. The power of quantum computers depends on keeping them in a fragile quantum-mechanical state — which researchers have found a new way to extend

2D Graphene Brings Faster Electronics, Stronger Spacecraft and much more One Step Closer

May 26, 2011 11:59 am | by Holly B. Martin | News | Comments

Graphene consists of row upon row of hexagonal rings of carbon atoms fitted together in a flat honeycomb pattern only a single atom thick. This atomic scale makes graphene part of the nano-world, where objects a thousand times thinner than a human hair no longer follow familiar natural laws such as friction and gravity

3-D Nanostructures Created Using Capillary Action Forces

October 21, 2010 10:30 am | News | Comments

Twisting spires, concentric rings, and gracefully bending petals are a few of the new three-dimensional shapes that engineers can make from carbon nanotubes using a new manufacturing process. The process is called "capillary forming," and it takes advantage of capillary action, the phenomenon at work when liquids seem to defy gravity and travel up a drinking straw of their own accord

Obtaining the 'Unobtainium' for NASA's Next Space Observatory

September 29, 2010 9:10 am | News | Comments

Imagine building a car chassis without a blueprint or even a list of recommended construction materials. In a sense, that's precisely what a team of engineers did when they designed a one-of-a-kind structure that is one of nine key new technology systems of the Integrated Science Instrument Module (ISIM)
