Finding the sweet spot with GPU vs CPU hardware for faster processing in Rocky DEM

Engineers running particle simulations now not only demand faster solution times but also want to increase the fidelity of their DEM simulations using millions more particles. Fortunately, advances in GPU capabilities have meant that Rocky DEM customers can take advantage dedicated GPU-based solvers - but what is the hardware sweet spot for different problem sizes? Here we review a comprehensive set of benchmarks completed by the Rocky DEM developers comparing solve times on CPUs vs GPUs.

Integration of Rocky DEM + Ansys for Particle-Fluids systems

Rocky is a powerful, 3D DEM program that quickly and accurately simulates particle behaviour within bulk materials handling systems used across a variety of industries including mining and minerals processing, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, agricultural and any industry dealing with particulate systems or solids handling applications. Some keys features include: an extensive library of realistic...
