What’s the Difference Between Single- and Multiple-Core Solvers? (.PDF Download)

When engineering analysts solve models using finite-element-analysis (FEA) and computational-fluid-dynamics (CFD) simulation software, they can often choose single- or multiple-core solvers. Although single core has historically been the default choice—and the easier one to deal with—in most cases, multicore has become the better option.

A multicore processing approach does require a higher initial financial investment than a single core, and is tougher to implement. But i
