Parallelization

Postby pirom » Fri Aug 16, 2013 9:40 am

Can meshes be generated in Trelis in parallel? If so, what is the correct syntax?

Thanks,
Markus

Also very interested in this, as I think it may solve my 'bad_alloc' question posted above.

Markus, in the user manual under 'parallel mesh refinement' there are instructions on how to refine the mesh on multiple cores. It seems like the STK Trilinos libraries are needed. You can download them and get installation help at http://trilinos.sandia.gov/. It also looks like you need the software package 'SIERRA', and this is where I'm stuck. Can't seem to find much information on this software anywhere.

If you manage to find SIERRA and get it installed please let me know. Of course, if anyone from CIMSOFT could help us out that'd be great as well.

Cheers and good luck.

Mike.

Michael,

Thanks for your response. I am aware of "parallel mesh refinement", but that is specifically for mesh refinement...not geometry or mesh generation. Some meshes that I am generating are quite large and complex, which could certainly benefit from parallelization. Perhaps this could be an added feature in the next release?

Regards,
Markus

Markus,

Currently, Trelis does not support parallel processing. This is something that we have added to our development plan.
