November 2022 Edition



Wow - It has been a while since OpenRadioss Community launched on September 8, 2022, but we have not stood still since. 

Today, the OpenRadioss Community with its prelaunch core members from industry and academia, has been joined by the big names in high performance computing technologies, and many, many other members. 

We have been overwhelmed by all the positive comments about OpenRadioss and the enthusiasm of our community members who are working together to add new and expanding features.

More about that later!
