Femap 11.4.2: Thermal and Flow Solver Parallel Processing Enhancements

By AlRobertson

The latest version of Femap is 11.4.2 and it contains a number of updates to the thermal and flow capabilities, including enhancements to the parallel processing capability for the thermal and flow solvers. Parallel processing has now been extended to the entire solution sequence for thermal and flow analyses. Solver distributed memory parallelization (DMP) extends to both CPU and RAM separately, and you can execute up to eight processors with the advanced thermal and flow modules.


See how to take advantage of parallel processing and watch the thermal and flow coupling with parallel processing video. Find out more about Femap 11.4.2 from the What’s New website.
