Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is widely used in the engineering community to simulate all kinds of fluid flow phenomena, be it just fluid flow or aerodynamics, or be it in a multi-physics scenario coupled with other physics simulation solvers like e.g. with Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to simulate material behavior (like fluid-structure interaction for  an airplane wing design), or even more complex fluid-structure-electrical interaction simulation of a personalized living heart. Good News, we just published our new CFD Compendium, with a collection of 36 CFD case studies summarizing High-Performance Computing (HPC) Cloud projects dealing with all kinds of CFD related engineering and scientific simulations which we have performed together with the engineering community over the last six years.


We started these “UberCloud Experiments” in 2012 to perform engineering simulation in the HPC cloud with real engineering applications in order to understand the roadblocks to success and how to overcome them. Our free Compendiums are our way of sharing the experience and results with the broader HPC and engineering community. Our efforts are now paying off. Based on the experience gained over the past six years and on novel HPC software container technology, we have now increased the success rate of the individual experiments to 100%, as compared to 40% in 2013 and 60% in 2014.


All 36 engineering case studies in this CFD Compendium demonstrate the wide applicability of high-performance cloud resources to complex engineering simulation workflows, such as:


Deep Learning in CFD, sports and racing car airflow, modeling moister in buildings, bioreactors, 3D wing flow, maneuvering container ships, heat exchangers, thermal modeling in reactors, nasal cavity, wind turbines, V6-intake manifold, spray modeling, radial turbo fans, dry-type transformers, motorbike simulations, combustion, blood flow through medical devices, coronary artery flow, geo-thermal perforation, compressor map generation, control valve testing, fluid-structure interaction in turbines, dam break simulations, convection in electronics, helicopter operations, two-phase gas-liquid flow, self-propelled ships, air conditioning, weather forecast, cardio-vascular medical device simulation, and unsteady flow around aircraft landing gears.
