    (generalized AI models for different use cases, geometries, and parameters’ values)
  • Designed to scale up fast
    (solver specific AI model within 2-4wks vs. 1-2yrs efforts for hardware adaptations)

Benefits and new possibilities with AI

  • Ultra-fast results drive costs down
    Lower cost of trial & error experiments, faster prototyping and parameterization

    Run more complex simulations within the same infrastructure
  • Lower entry barrier for new CFD adopters
    Quick answers with AI
  • Plug & Play
    Compatible with growing number of CFD tools

Licensing

  1. CFD Suite standard license consists of 2 elements
    • One-time fee for product calibration/training/generalization (family of use cases).
    • Annual license per company, giving access to the product incl. upgrades, customer care/support for 12 months.
      NOTE: the goal is to train & generalize the CFD Suite models so that they can predict results across a family (or families) of use cases/geometries/parameters combination within a given phenomenon.
  2. CFD Suite extended customization (optional)
    • In case you do not have or cannot generate the data for training, byteLAKE can offload your teams from this task and prepare the required simulations.
    • The cost is estimated case by case (one-time project fee).
  3. CFD Suite integration (optional)
    • byteLAKE is working with a growing number of partners to ensure that CFD Suite is properly integrated or available as an add-on to leading CAE/CFD tools incl. open source
    • Therefore, integration scenarios are discussed case by case

CFD Suite deployment

CFD Suite deliverables

AI Model(s) compatible with your existing workflow

  • No need to change any data types, replace toolchains, etc.
  • No hardware/infrastructure upgrades or changes needed
  • Cross-platform compatibility (CPU-only, CPU+GPU, PC/ data center/ cloud, etc.)

AI Model(s) easy to use

  • Highly compatible solution ready to take data as CFD Solvers do
  • Easy adaptation. Working the same way, the standard CFD Solvers do
  • Minimum 10x faster results compering to CFD Solvers
  • Highly adaptive solution ready to follow changes in  CFD Solvers

AI Model(s) enabling new possibilities

  • Much faster simulations
  • Significantly reduced cost of trial & error experiments

Typical steps to get started

  1. CFD Solver selection: pick the one you’d like to accelerate
    Typical candidate: simulations that take too long
  2. Setting the targets for AI Model(s)
    What level of acceleration do you expect? Reduce time/iterations? Anything else?
    What is the accepted accuracy? Within 85-95%? Higher? Lower?
    Should AI generate only the result of the simulation or intermediate steps as well?
    Consultancy to assess the solver’s input/output (types, ranges, etc.)
  3. AI Model training
    Based on the above, byteLAKE will train the CFD Suite to accelerate your CFD Solver(s)
    CFD Suite will be 100% compatible with your workflow
    = no need for any changes in infrastructure or data formats/types

Key takeaways

  • CFD Suite accelerates time to results for conventional CFD solvers by a factor of at least 10x and keeps the accuracy at the level of at least 93%.
  • New AI models are constantly added by byteLAKE to the CFD Suite which gradually increases the number of CFD simulations that can be handled by the CFD Suite off-the-shelf. To do so byteLAKE collaborates with a growing number of industry leaders.
  • CFD Suite is an add-on to existing CAE/CFD tools and its integration is a straightforward process.
  • CFD Suite is a data-driven solution. Therefore, past simulations done by conventional CFD solvers are required to train its AI models so that they can predict the results.
  • CFD Suite is a scalable solution, and we observed a stable efficiency across cluster nodes.
  • The inference process is executed up to 9.5x faster on the Intel Xeon Gold with CFD Suite optimized with OpenVINO compared with V100 GPU.
  • By configuring the CFD Suite to use AI models in ACCURATE mode and using 2xXeon Gold CPUs, 90% of the simulation is predicted 111x faster than CFD solver computation, and 9.25x faster considering 10% overhead of the CFD solver.
