Hardware Considerations for Efficient Finite Element Analysis

Hardware Considerations for Efficient Finite Element Analysis


In this webinar, we discussed what hardware configurations to pursue to get the most efficient solutions from your FEA tools. We examined various hardware components such as processors, RAM, GPUs, and hard drives and how they interact with your FEA databases and solvers. We also delved into various solution algorithms and how they are affected by your hardware setup. Finally, we explored different cluster solution options for even more capacity and speed beyond your workstation.
