Maxwell Time Decomposition Method Accelerates Simulation of Transient Electromagnetic Fields with Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2697 v4

ANSYS teamed with INTEL to benchmark a new ANSYS Maxwell technology that delivers dramatic speed improvement for transient electromagnetic field simulations. Simulations that previously required weeks of computation time are now completed in a matter of hours. The key software technology is a new algorithm within Maxwell that allows engineers to solve time steps simultaneously as opposed to sequentially.
