Multi-computer simulations?

Hi all,


Has anyone been able to dish out the Solver process on several computers?

Does anyone know of a software that could do this, for SW Simulation?


Being a SW teacher at the end of term, I have recently helped some of my students with Simulation/Motion/FloWorks for their thesis projects. Some have been quite massive - had one with some 5 million DOF's - and it bugs me that I am unable to use our classroom computers during nighttime. 3D Studio with its Backburner works just fine for rendering, and it would be nice to have something similar for SW.

I am aware that rendering a picture and computing a FEM analysis is not the same type of calculation, but shouldn't it be possible? Perhaps someone from SW staff can comment on this?
