Yes.

Try 'fluent version -tnprocs'

Where version is 2d, 2ddp, 3d etc. and nprocs is to be replaced by the number of processors.

For instance, for a 3 dimensional problem in a dual processor system you would type:

fluent 3d -t2

Sure, as long as you have enough licenses. Each CPU takes up a seat.

You can also buy parrallel licenses. They are much cheaper than buying an entire second license.

I'm not an expert, but from what I've heard on the forum, people are using 64-bit AMD machines. I would think that you wouldn't have any problems (assuming its set up correctly and you have the proper licenses).

Only way to know is to try, and if you run into problems, then post your problem on here, and someone may know how to fix it.

Good luck, Jason

If its a Linux OS and you have a message passing interface software (and network interconnect card if the processors are on separate nodes), then you can. If not, then I think you can't. If you have Windows, then I don't know, but I believe you would still need some way of passing messages through a "traffic cop" so the two processors could know how to communicate with one another.

For your purposes, it should be easy to obtain a "network" message passing interface (NMPI). There are many free ones available, such as ROCKS, which comes from the San Diego supercomputing center --> http://www.rocksclusters.org/Rocks/

You can run parallel process on two processors. If you are using a single memory for both processors, then you can run Shared MPI which is much faster than Network MPI.
