Hello All,

I need to complete a project which is having 4 buildings basements, I don't have very much time duration for this project , I need to complete these all buildings within a short period. One of the Building basement CFD is already I put in simulation with "Run FDS parallel" , But due to urgency , I need to launch another project simultaneously. As I tried to run another project with "Run FDS Parallel" but its not getting started even. Hence I tried to run another one with "Run FDS" only, and it is getting started & running properly.

I request you all please give your suggestions whether the these solver can be run together/Simultaneously. Whether its going to give me correct results. Whether I m doing it correctly?? :'( if I m wrong, Please advise what should i do to run them simultaneously.

Looking forward for your valuable response.

Thanks & Best Regards,
Ms. Mehar Ansari

You posted this on the Pathfinder forum instead of the PyroSim one - you may get more responses if you repost it there.  From my understanding, Run FDS Parallel is going to take all available computer resources to run your model.  By running a second model simultaneously, you are splitting your resources further.  You are likely better off running one model in Run FDS Parallel and then running the second one the same way.  Others may have better advice on this topic though..
