Abstract

The design of gas-turbine engines relies on physics-based modeling and simulation, including finite element analysis (FEA). Improvements in the methods used and the parallel scalability of FEA codes allows faster time-to-solution, enabling improvements in product design. This paper will describe recent improvements in the time-to-solution for modeling gas-turbine engines with LS-DYNA. Results are presented using as many as 16384 processors on the Blue Waters and Titan supercomputers.
