PADT & Nimbix FAQ

You asked, and we answered. Below find a list of answers to commonly asked questions regarding the capabilities of Nimbix and it’s applications for ANSYS simulation software.

If you have additional questions you can email us at info@padtinc.com, or view a recording of our recent webinar on the benefit of using Nimbix when it comes to running simulation on the cloud:

Nimbix FAQ

  • Does NIMBIX comply with NIST 800-171/800-53 requirements
    1. NIMBIX is currently working on NIST compliance as we speak and are hoping to complete this very soon
  • What is the maximum core count?
    1. Customers using NIMBIX has access to thousands of cores. There are customers using 500 cores, 1000 cores and even more.
  • Does Nimbix provide any details of solving performance or hardware performance after a solution?
    1. What’s great about Nimbix is that you have complete access to the typical ANSYS performance/hardware outputs that all the solvers provide. In addition NIMBIX provides access to time/cost for the machines themselves
  • Any try before you buy arrangement to try it out?
    1. Please contact us at info@padtinc.com if you have any questions or if you’d like to see Nimbix in more details
  • My companies QA program requires verification of software installation. Can Nimbix run the workbench/ANSYS test suite?
    1. Nimbix is able to run a variety of benchmarks to validate and verify ANSYS
  • Maybe just a general question…any idea which solvers use GPUs?
    1. The Mechanical solver utilizes GPU extensively. In addition one of the Fluent solvers and an HFSS solver can utilize a GPU
  • The cost is of course important…how can you get the startup cost easily?
    1. Nimbix shows list prices on the website for a variety of machines. In addition Nimbix does not charge any subscription fees, gives each user 500GB free and does not charge file upload/download fees.  Please email us for any further clarifications
  • Is the license fee the typical fee for a standalone/network license?
    1. In terms of licensing, a customer’s own licenses are always used to run ANSYS. Nimbix can either host some or all of your licenses on their license server. OR Nimbix can access your own license server through a tunnel VPN.
  • Can you provide more insight on the monetary cost of running a computational intensive simulation, like very high-velocity object impact using ANSYS/Autodyn on Nimbix (large run time, large file storage)?
    1. As always, costs will vary depending on the type of problem. Please email us at info@padtinc.com if you want exact details on costs
  • How is session cost calculated?
    1. Session costs are purely based on time that you hold a machine. Time is calculated to the second
  • Suppose I’m limited not on cores in the office, but on licenses. If all the Mechanicals/Solvers/PrepPosts are occupied by the rest of the team, can I still use your service?
    1. Licenses need to be provided by the customer, either through their own license server or by hosting partial licenses on Nimbix’s own license server
  • How is ANSYS licensing handled?
    1. In terms of licensing, a customer’s own licenses are always used to run ANSYS. Nimbix can either host some or all of your licenses on their license server. OR Nimbix can access your own license server through a tunnel VPN.
  • How does Nimbix proving compare to purchasing HPC units upfront for an internal system with 16 to 32 cores? I know usage profile would matter, but this could be easily charted?
    1. Usage would definitely dictate a comparison. If there any specific use cases you’d like to investigate please reach out to us at info@padtinc.com
  • ANSYS/Autodyn is available on the Nimbix HPC platform?
    1. Yes it is
  • Is there a minimum charge?
    1. There is no minimum charge.

What is New and Exciting in Mechanical Simulation – Webinar Recording

The use of FEA and CFD techniques to simulate the behavior of structures, fluids, and electromagnetic fields has gone from an occasional task done by experts to a standard method for driving product development.

The webinar below is a presentation by PADT’s Co-Owner and Principal, Eric Miller discussing recent advances in simulation that are pushing the technology towards covering more phenomenon, faster run times, and greater accuracy. From up-front real-time stress and fluid flow to massive combustion models with chemistry, fluid flow, thermals, and turbulence; simulation is how products are designed.

The talk covers:

  • What is Simulation and How did we Get Where we are
  • Five Current Technology Trends in Simulation
  • Business Trends to be Aware Of
  • What Is Next?
  • How to Keep Up
If you would like to learn more, especially how simulation can drive your company’s product development, please contact PADT.

ANSYS Discovery Live – Fluid Flows Webinar Recording & FAQ

Below you can find some of the most frequently asked questions from this webinar, along with our answers.

Q: What computer and license type are you actually using for running the simulation? Ram, cores, CPU, etc.

A: 16 GB RAM Intel i7, NVIDIA Quadro K1100M

Q: Is the solver running a transient solution in the background while you are post processing and haven’t paused it, or is it marching towards better convergence of a steady state solution?

A: The solver is running a transient solution the entire time. The only time it is not doing this is if I pause the simulation.

Q: Does this require 3D models to be built within Discovery Live, or it can import outside 3D models (Solidworks etc) and still allows the user to add/modify geometry objects on the fly within Discovery Live?

A: Yes, you can import any CAD native format or neutral format in Discovery Live. You can also create Geometry from scratch in Discovery Live using the SpaceClaim tools.

Q: It looks like when you change the “speed – fidelity” setting, the solver resets; while when you change other settings (like domain geometry), the solution continues from last step. What’s being changed when you change the “speed-fidelity” setting?

A: When you change the Speed-Fidelity setting, the computational grid of the domain is coarsened or refined. It is also re-partitioned/parallelized on the GPU cores.

Q: Are there predictive features of simulation, obtaining design suggestions from the end results? Are there inputs for end results to accomplish reverse engineering?

A: Yes, in a sense. Because Discovery Live provides literally “real-time” feedback on design changes, you have design suggestions based on the end results. For reverse engineering in Discovery Live: there are not inputs for end results, but the part you’d like to reverse engineer can be imported (or created) in Discovery Live, and then analyzed in the range of operating conditions to understand it’s performance.

Q: Do you have any control of the mesh? How boundary/layer effects can be checked?

A: Control of the mesh available via the Speed-Fidelity slider bar. Boundary layer effects could be checked using surface integrals of force, but again recall that if you’re trying to finely resolve details such as boundary layer physics, you may need to consider the next level of accuracy which would be Discovery AIM or Fluent.
