Partnership aims at engineering excellence

The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) has announced the formation of a strategic academic partnership with Ansys, a leader in engineering simulation software.

PSC is a national centre for high-performance computing, funded by multiple US federal and state agencies and a service provider in the NSF XSEDE programme, enabling computational science nationwide.

As a result of the new partnership, PSC will be able to provide exceptional engineering simulation resources to academia. It will be the only software provider in the XSEDE programme to offer access to the full Ansys multi-physics simulation software suite.

Scientists in US academic institutions use PSC computing resources to perform computations in the physical, social and biological sciences, including various engineering disciplines.

Cheryl Begandy, director of education, outreach and training at PSC, said: 'PSC desired to acquire the full Ansys multiphysics software suite to support those academic researchers who need to supplement the capabilities of their local computers to perform more computationally intensive Ansys simulations.'

All universities that have current and valid Ansys licenses are eligible to participate in the programme.
