Good afternoon dear experts,

I'm trying to simulate a channel consisting of 400000 cells, divided in to 4 mesh blocks .

Finish time 500 seconds

The configuration of my machine is: Intel i7 2.8 GHz 6.00 GB of ram

The problem is, the simulation is taking too long.

This is normal due to the resolution of my mesh?
What should I do to get a faster simulation?

Thankful, waiting for help.

I think the finish time is too long. How long is your channel? Are the mesh blocks nested?
