Re: hello? -help with a spinning bucket!


ah?  so there -is- a limit?  but my point was that the more particles, the longer it will take, and if my timestep has to be so incredibly small, the cost of food and rent over the duration of the simulations might already go over budget.. hehe :)

um..  I was planing on running everything on an HP Pavilion Entertainment PC laptop.

I assume it has only one core, and I certainly don't know how to hook up other ones, though I know people who surely do.

how many cores do you folks usually use?  4-core I7 and I5 machines, 6-core AMD 1090T, I am more-less satisfied with that.

am I fighting what must surely be a loosing battle, my goal being to simulate up to 1 million particles (1 cubic millimeter glass beads in a volume of about 1 liter), for at least 4-10 seconds?  10 000 particles? 1000?

Yade can normally handle up to 100 000 particles.
