NVIDIA Modulus was previously known as NVIDIA SimNet.
NVIDIA Modulus is a GPU-accelerated simulation toolkit based on physics-informed neural networks (PINNs). At SC19, we showed how Modulus could interactively explore the pressure drop and temperature variations in different heatsink designs to quickly converge on an optimal design.
Since then, the technology behind Modulus has advanced significantly in simulation of advanced physics applications, modeling with CAD geometries and performance on single as well as multiple GPUs.
At SC20, we are showcasing how Modulus can help medical researchers simulate and predict the underlying blood flow physics in an aneurysm. Modulus is using medical imaging data to calculate the full spatial-temporal pulsating velocity field in a blood vessel aneurysm. With Modulus, doctors can get a far better estimation of the velocities, pressures, and wall shear stresses in the blood vessel, which can help lead to better, more targeted treatment.
