Parallel processing in star3.24
Hi all!! Can anybody tell me whether it is possible to setup parallel run involving moving mesh with events in star3.24. If so which manual to refer to for setting up the parallel case..

Thank you in advance for responding

I hope you don't think of valve and piston movement. That's very tricky to get a good load balance.

There is no official StarCD manual, but perhaps this strategy is explained in the ES-ICE manual (I don't know for sure). ES-ICE is doing that for you, but ES-ICE is expensive.

Otherwise, you have to make a plan by your own which cells should belong to which CPU-domain during the movement. You better take one whole CPU, just only for to calculate the mesh-movement during the run.

Thank you very much Hubert, I'll try the idea...
