2013: Configuring Dual Domain Parallelization in Autodesk Simulation Moldflow Insight
You want to utilize all the cores for multi-threading Dual Domain Flow analyses and are unsure of how to configure the analysis to do so as this is a brand new feature.
With the release of the new Autodesk Simulation Moldflow 2013 product, we've increased the scope with which our multi-threading technology is available. For reference, multi-threading allows the use of more than one core to simultaneously process data from the same analysis to increase the speed with which an analysis can run by improving the efficiency of the machines use of resources.
The process is set to automatic at the onset of a model configuration. Automatic will review the resources available and maximize efficiency based on those resources. So for example, if several cores are being utilized for other resources, Moldflow will only thread the analyses across the resources still available. The setup can be modified to automatic, single, maximum, and no threading. All other settings are self explanatory.
The process for modifying the parallelization is listed below.
- Configure a Dual Domain model to run Flow
- Open your process settings
3. Go to the Flow page and select Advanced Options
4. In the advanced options, choose Edit for "Solver Parameters"
5. On the Parallelization tab modify the settings as desired
