Optimize your machine for the best FEA experience
Recommended System Configuration
The following system configuration is recommended for running StressCheck® Professional on Windows 10 OS:
- Intel Xeon CPU @ 2.5 GHz or greater
- 32 GB Random Access Memory (RAM)
- 1 TB SSD scratch disk with SAS disk controller
- NVIDIA/AMD graphics card with 4 GB RAM or greater
- Windows 10 Professional
- Microsoft .NET 4.5 Framework
- Adobe Reader (for offline documentation)
Minimum System Configuration
The following minimum system configuration is required to run StressCheck® Professional on Windows 10 OS:
- 8 GB Random Access Memory (RAM)
- 20 GB free disk storage
- OpenGL-compliant video card
Note: Operational efficiency of StressCheck® is dependent upon the amount of RAM, the number of processor cores, disk speed and available scratch disk space. The more memory and disk space that you provide, the better StressCheck® will perform.
For example, the below benchmark of 22770 3D tetrahedra representing a rib section under torsion was solved at p=5 (~1.6M DOF, 6 minutes) in StressCheck® v11 Update 1 and required 13.2 GB of disk space and approximately 2 GB of RAM during solution processing:
And this benchmark of 9532 3D elements (9160 tetrahedra, 212 pentahedra and 160 hexahedra) of a longeron section under bearing/bypass loading was solved at p=6 (~1.1M DOF, 7 minutes) in StressCheck® v11 Update 1 and required 17 GB of disk space and approximately 3.3 GB of RAM during solution processing:
