The increasing complexity of electric vehicles result in large and complex computational models for simulations that demand enormous compute resources. On-premises high-performance computing (HPC) clusters and computer-aided engineering (CAE) tools are commonly used but some limitations occur when the models are too big or when multiple iterations need to be done in a very short term, leading to a lack of available compute resources. In this hybrid approach, cloud computing offers a flexible and cost-effective alternative, allowing engineers to utilize the latest hardware and software on-demand. Ansys Gateway powered by AWS, a cloud-based simulation software platform, drives efficiencies in automotive engineering simulations. Complete Ansys simulation and CAE/CAD developments can be managed in the cloud with access to AWS’s latest hardware instances, providing significant runtime acceleration.
Two recent studies show how Ansys Gateway powered by AWS can balance run times and costs, making it a compelling solution for automotive development.
