We are considering the deployment of STAR-CCM+ software bundle within our company.
At the present time we perform the budget and schedule for it that is why we need to clarify following issues:
- Does the Star-CCM+ support Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA)? Or could it be supported in future?
The personnel of Sarov Engineering Center reassured us that the STAR-CCM+ software doesn’t support CUDA feature, but in accordance with Nvidia Tesla marketing materials, this software is fully compatible with CUDA. Please see p.9 of attached PDF-file (http://www.t-systems-sfr.com/e/downloads/2011/vortraege/02Koehler.pdf). The CUDA support critical important for us because it will affect on the Cluster specification.
- We need the recommended Cluster configuration to perform thermal-velocity calculation for indoor air streams with 10 bln. polygons and double precision within 1 day (approx. 24 hours).
