Cray and MCube Develop Unique Software to Perform Aero-Acoustic Simulations Significantly Faster

Cray Inc. and MCube, a provider of simulation software, announced results from their two-year collaboration to optimize a highly efficient multi-processor version of Radioss-CFD. Simulations that took several weeks to complete on RISC machines now can be performed within a few days on Cray systems.

Aero-acoustics is the study of noise generated by a moving fluid, and usually involves the interaction with structures. Cray and MCube began their joint work in 2000 investigating the noise created by side-view mirrors on cars. They have investigated other problems such as exhaust pipes, intakes, centrifugal and axial fans.
