Title: CAD-Integrated Direct-to-HPC Simulation for Design and Optimization

Abstract

This report details the progress made during the SBIR Phase I contract entitled, "CAD-Integrated Direct-to-HPC Simulation for Design and Optimization," codenamed "HPcAD," to build an automated software pipeline to mesh and solve computer-aided design (CAD) models. An initial, functional version of HPcAD was developed, demonstrated, and initially tested. Initial concepts were refi ned based on research performed by the Illinois Rocstar team, and proposed milestones were updated and achieved in adherence with this research. A plugin for the CAD software Autodesk Fusion 360 was built to send geometry, boundary condition, and confi guration data to a web server which then meshes the geometry and runs the speci fied solver. The web server includes a user interface for uploading custom geometry or running sample pipelines. A world-accessible version of this web application is available at http://hpccad.com for demonstration purposes. The feasibility of the HPcAD concept has been conclusively demonstrated during this project.
