Online Workshop on High Performance Computing in  Engineering

October 21-22, 2021

Organized by the  IIT Kharagpur  and  Ansys

Under the aegis of National Supercomputing Mission


About the Workshop:

Use of High Performance Computing (HPC) in engineering computations allows simulations to be bigger, more complex and more accurate than ever. The workshop aims to cover different aspects relevant for using HPC to solve large-scale problems in several areas as structural analysis, computational fluid dynamics, electronics and optics. Basics of different computational techniques as well as advanced case studies for use of HPC will be presented.
