Maximize Performance and Scalability of RADIOSS*
Complex simulations of structural and systems performance, such as car crash simulations, require a massive number of computations. Today’s simulation software relies on highly parallelized codes to take advantage of the large number of cores in high-performance computing (HPC) clusters to increase processing speed for such complex simulations.
Altair RADIOSS* software, optimized for Intel® Xeon® processors, uses hybrid massively parallel processing to deliver outstanding performance on a wide range of computing configurations, from smaller single-node workstations to more powerful clusters with thousands of cores.
To evaluate the performance and scalability of Altair RADIOSS on Intel® Xeon® processor E7-4890 v2, Altair benchmarked RADIOSS using a modified publicly available crash simulation model of a Chrysler Neon* passenger car on a single-node platform with 4 sockets, 60 cores, 120 threads, and 256 GB of memory. RADIOSS was able to easily take advantage of all 60 cores, running the workload 2.75 times faster than on a comparable 24-core platform based on Intel Xeon processor E5-2695 v2.
This paper summarizes the findings of the benchmark.
