Parallel execution in Abaqus/Explicit:

  • reduces run time for analyses that require a large number of increments;

  • reduces run time for analyses that contain a large number of nodes and elements;

  • produces analysis results that are independent of the number of processors used for the analysis;

  • is available for shared memory computers using a thread-based loop level or thread-based domain decomposition implementation; and

  • is available for both shared memory computers and computer clusters using an MPI-based domain decomposition parallel implementation.
