Please would someone be able to advise me on a suitable computer set-up for running SW simulations on?
I have recently been running a frequency domain 3D model, on windows 10, with system specs:
My model is a cylinder of height 310mm, diameter 152mm and thickness of 1mm. My mesh size is 0.5mm of high quality mesh, I cannot use shell elements for some reason, it just doesn't work. When I run this model for the linear elastic case, finding more than 20 resonant frequencies, I get lots of errors popping up regarding computer memory and eventually the model stops.
I know I will need to run this model for a dynamic case, using non-linear settings because of the type of material the cylinder is made from. So I have come to the conclusion that the computational power I have currently is more than likely not enough.
Would anyone be able to suggest a spec for building another computer that could comfortably run the types of model I have described above?
Thank you in advance!
