ANSYS and EPTA

Epta is a world leader in designing solutions for commercial refrigeration. Epta helps to satisfy the needs of demanding customers around the world, addressing critical issues for large-scale retail trade.

Business Challenges

Engineering simulation allows Epta team to evaluate multiple refrigeration system designs and validate their performance under various working conditions.

Global engineering trends have created a demand for deep physical understanding that is bigger than ever before. Large simulation effort is thus required in order to efficiently deal with such challenging demand.

Technology Used

ANSYS® Fluent™,  ANSYS CFD PrepPost , ANSYS HPC Pack™,

Gompute on Demand.

Engineering Solution

  • The simulation of flow patterns, pressure drops and of the airflow thermal behavior in a refrigerated cabinet with 3D and transient analysis has been performed with ANSYS Fluent
  • Hosting ANSYS Fluent on a Gompute cluster gives a “ready-to-go” and robust environment that allows investigations in a fast and convenient way, especially on production peaks.
  • The split of CFD Prep/Post and solver activities gives to customer a flexible configuration to manage multiple projects in the same time.

 

Benefits

  • The new hosted solution resulted in a significant increase in flexibility on allocating computing resources, capacity and simulation speed, at a lower cost of ownership than building an internal cluster.
  • The new capacity was launched much faster than securing internal hardware resources.
  • The productivity of Epta engineers has improved, because they can remotely access a best-in-class HPC environment for CAE — including visualization, job submission and data management.
  • Customer responsiveness and satisfaction have increased because of faster project turnaround.
  • ANSYS works directly with Gompute to resolve any support cases, minimizing the involvement of EPTA’s engineering team components.
