Re: Workstation Hardware Requirements

Thanks mzenker, Yeah, I decided to go with Kubuntu because of FreeCAD forum advice about the attractiveness of "KDE" desktop environment and because CAELinux used Ubuntu. Personally, I don't want to use a LiveDVD distribution though because of reduced performance. I do plan on installing the same so...

Linux Distribution and Comiling From Source

Hello, Well, I have my new workstation! Before I start and get lost in multi-physics, I want to get FreeCAD on my workstation so that I can build nice geometric structures to be meshed. I am completely new to Linux though, I decided on CentOS, and I must compile my own FreeCAD because no FreeCAD RPM...

Hello, Question: When thinking about multiple core processors, will Elmer Multi-physics take advantage of processor multitasking? I assume it will since you mentioned MPI[1]. Since I am learning, I thought I would make sure before I concentrate on such processors as Intel Xenon. I was reviewing some...

Update?--Re: Chemical Reaction

Hello, I am a chemical engineer and would really enjoy finding an open source multi-physics with chemical reaction physics such as Continuously Stirred Tank Reactor (CSTR), Plug flow Reactor (PFR), Batch Reactor, Non-Ideal Residence Time Distribution simulation, etc. I wish I had the programming kno...
