Slow simulation: Only 50% of CPU power utilised

Hello

 

I'm running a simulation study on a compression spring, which is an CPU intensive process. However, it seems that only 50% of the CPU resources are being utilised on my VM running on a 4-core machine:

I've already allocated 4 CPUs to the VM, but SW Simulation seems to be using all 4 cores to various extents. However, the resulting load is still around 50% throughout.

 

Does anyone know why this is the case? Is SW Simulation somehow limited?

 

Thanks
