Pop the hood on ANSYS meshing

Posted October 4, 2012 at 13:05 by PSYMN

Thought I would show a little about how to "pop the hood" on ANSYS Meshing and Access the ICEM Technology underneath...

Here is a link...

Processor Affinity to Enhance Speed

Posted September 11, 2012 at 11:09 by Hisham (Notes for OpenFOAM!)

To enhance the speed of running a solver one can use a "hard" assignment of the job to a specific core. This reduces the work needed to switch jobs between cores and enhances the speed. It is really neat if you need to do some other work on the workstation while the run is going on in the background.

Install:
Code:
# apt-get install schedtool
Use:
Code:
$ schedtool -a 5 10640
This command assigns job 10640...

more helpful info on under-relaxation factors:

If not, then it is a hint that there is an inherent stability issues in the problem you are trying to solve or perhaps one of your modeling parameters is incorrect.

what is under relaxation factor?

Posted August 27, 2012 at 09:23 by kira

something to keep in mind:

Sometimes for many many reasons the solution can become unstable so a relaxation factor is used - takes part of value from previous iteration
