Sponsored by the United States Air Force Turbine Branch under the direction of Dr. John Clark, ADS shows the advantages of using cloud resources for large scale multi-row time-accurate simulations. A 1.5 stage turbine, with blade counts of 60/70/35, is simulated on Amazon EC2 cc1.xlarge instances.

The results were impressive with 1 revolution required 72 hours at a cost of less than $1,000.
