Speedup / on how much cores should I start my job?
The performance of LS-DYNA is optimized for actual parallel computer architectures. With the High Performance Computing platform available on LS-DYNAcloud satisfying speedups can be achieved up to parallel usage of 1000s of cores. The speedup varies depending on the type of application and the geometry of the model. In many cases (e.g. small models) speedup on high core numbers cannot be guaranteed. Therefore, we recommend to do a performance study to determine the scaling factor for your individual case in order to optimize valuable computing time.
Performance car crash model: Total clock time on 8 cores = 593 seconds = 1.3 core hours
Performance 3 vehicle collision model: Total clock time on 64 cores= 1418 seconds =25.2 core hours
Can I have a license for educational purposes?
LS-DYNAcloud is open to both users from academia and industry.
A valid educational or commercial license on your own computer/system is required before access to LS-DYNAcloud can be granted.
