HPC in Ansys Mechanical In-Core versus Out-of-Core (Self-paced Learning Available)

Course Overview

This course is about the Sparse solver memory management methods and performance during a solve. 


Teaching Method

This is a self-paced course covering lectures, demonstrations and workshops.

Learning Outcome

Following completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the difference between the In-core and Out-of-Core method of memory requirement, 
  • memory footprint during a solve.
  • Understand the outcome of a minor setup update impact on solver time and memory.
  • Evaluate your model and your machine’s capacity before taking the decision on which solver to use  
    and which option for the sparse solver to define
  • Optimize your machine’s capacity to run your model faster  
  • Interpret the solution information (solve.out) and the information about memory usage  
    (Solving time, RAM consumption, etc.).
