If you are a user of Autodesk® Robot™ Structural Analysis and haven't upgraded to the 2011 release you may be missing out on an opportunity to take advantage of the multi-threaded solver which can help speed analysis of large project files.
This capability facilitates:
• multiple acceleration of calculations, particularly for large project files with dynamic analysis defined
• optimal work on an Intel® processor, including use of the parallel processing in multi-core processors
• calculation of large project files due to optimization of the memory usage
Customers are already experiencing the power and speed of the multi-threaded calculation solver such as Kai Viggo Munch, a Structural engineer with Teknisk Data AS, OSLO, Norway who said "This solver is a great asset, as more and more users are handling bigger and bigger problems – mostly because of earthquake analyses".
The multi-thread calculation solver is powered by Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL) 10.1 .
Intel MKL is a library of highly optimized, extensively threaded math routines for science, engineering, and financial applications that require maximum performance.
