Computing Hardware

Operating these tools puts a great burden on the computing requirements so QED Naval use High Performance Computing (HPC) from ANSYS combined with Windows Server 2012 to cluster their compute and domain servers along with their high end Dell Precision workstations. This provides 32 core compute capability with over 128GB of memory to run very large numerical ship/platform models in a reasonable project time scale.

If customers need to increase the learn rate from their numerical models then QED Naval has membership and access to the Hartree Supercomputer Centre based in Cambridge. This access is managed through OCF who support QED Naval in their cloud computing requirements.
