Nor-Tech Partners with ESI and OpenFOAM

The companies are working to provide more affordable HPC simulation access.

Nor-Tech has partnered with ESI and OpenFOAM to bring more affordable HPC (high-performance computing) simulation options to its customers. The goal is to reduce licensing and ownership costs for hardware and software.

According to a company press release, OpenFOAM includes a full array of tools that solve anything from complex fluid flows involving chemical reactions, turbulence, and heat transfer to acoustics, solid mechanics, and electromagnetics. The utility is independently tested by ESI-OpenCFD and supported by ESI’s worldwide infrastructure. Advantages include:

  • No license fees
  • Friendly syntax for partial differential equations
  • Unstructured polyhedral grid capabilities
  • Automatic parallelization of applications written using OpenFOAM high-level syntax
  • Wide range of applications and models ready to use
  • Professional support, development and training from OpenFOAM’s originators
“We saw a disconnect in the industry between rapidly growing organizations that could really benefit from HPC clusters and the solutions that were on the market. Our goal was to develop a powerful, scalable cluster that was in itself affordable, but also didn’t require hefty, recurring software licensing fees,” said David Bollig, president and CEO of Nor-Tech.
