hi
I'm running Fluent and it doesn't seem to be taking a whole lot of my system's resources.
anybody know how I can force it to use more of my machine's capabilities so that calculations are done quicker?

I'm using version 13, but if there's a solution for earlier versions I'm sure we can extrapolate from there

Ok now see i5 is four core machine and i7 is 8 core machine. To confirm that u can u can click on task manager and performance.The number of green boxes are the number of maximum cores in which u can run fluent.

Now in fluent 13.Go to the parallel tab in the launching window .Set it to parallel tab on the right bottom side side, and select the cores; to number of cores you have in your machine or you want to use in that simulation.

Up-to 4 lakhs mesh u can simulate in i5 and more than that you can use i7 or otherwise it depends on your working environment and capabilities of the machine.

You are done.

HI
After doing that then you can check
task manager and performance . U can see that your CPU usage is 100%.
Ram usage is never 100%.It depends on your simulation.
