Hello all,

remember my post on combustion ? It's there, Menthor Graphics has put it in its software modules.


Well, there's good news also for parallel calculation:


This part of the press release sounds like an implementation of parallel calculation:


"Supports Linux x64 to leverage multicore PCs (such as a Linux cluster) for effective parametric study with multiple variants calculated at each node concurrently"

There are many SPR's on the matter:


555255 - Full use of parallel computing architecture for increasing computing performance on solving analisys (Simulation & Flow).


680070 - SPR 680070 Introduce simultaneous solving of a single Flow Simulation project on several machines.


329447 -  Ability for the CFW solver to make use of multiple processors, dual core processors, and network processing ( cluster computing HPC )


So let's vote, the more we vote for it, the more likely a fast implementation.


Here's the procedure to vote for an enhancement request:
