A proper PC for DEM or FEMxDEM simulation

Asked by Alireza Sadeghi on 2019-10-01


Do have any suggestions for a proper system? My project is about DEM simulation and I have problem with high run time. My professor asked me if I need faster PC. I have a PC now with this configuration: Intel Core i7-4790@3.6GHz x 8. It is really fast but it is not enough. The price is not important. Thank you for your help.

Best Regards

Create a machine with the most cores possible.

Personally I keep an eye on AMD epyc rome 64 cores. On a two socket motherboard that would be 128 cores at 3.4GHz (or 256 threads with multithreading enabled). You only need to make sure there is enough RAM to use all this speed.

Thank you very much for your response. Is there any paper about the hardware which is proper for DEM simulation?how about parallel calculation and using PC for YADE simulation?

Thank you very much.
