Hardware requirements for Pyrosim only (not simulation), Laptop
« on: February 01, 2021, 04:37:45 am »


I am considering running Pyrosim (but not the actual FDS simulation) on a Laptop, can you give me some hardware requirements? The simulation will run on remotely on another machine.

OR can anyone give me some examples where Pyrosim is installed and runs smoothly on a laptop/lower power machine.

PyroSim has tools to help create and manage multiple meshes. Multiple grids in a model allow using parallel computing to speed up calculations, simplify the geometry to reduce the number of grid cells in the model (thus reducing the calculation time), and change the resolution in different parts of the model. All these calculations definitely need good video resources.

PyroSim supports running MPI in parallel. Parallel calculations can be started simply through a menu command on a single computer with multiple cores or processors. This means that the processor must also be of decent quality. Otherwise, your files can get lost, and only raid configurations can help.
