Hi guys,

I have a pc with a quad core processor!
When i run a fluent simulation, fluent uses the power of the four cores by default?

Thanks

To run on multiple processors you will require additional licenses. These licenses are much cheaper than a full Fluent license. They are called ANSYS HPC (High Performance Computing) licenses. There is also something called an HPC pack that allows you to run simulations on up to 8 processors (for dual quad-core machines).
