Improving the speed ofmy computer (hp Z800 workstation)

Dear Sir

 

Can you help me to improve the performance of my computer(the speed), where I am doing dynamic analysis for concrete tower using (200 mode) , the finite element size(1.00m) on the version (ARSApro2013), whereas the program takes more than (60 hours) until I can get the analysis results.

Knowing that my compture(hp Z800 workstation) specifications as attached.Although , I've developed  it from (6 GB RAM) to (48 GB RAM) and don’t note any improvement in performance (increased speed).And the graphics card specifications as following :

GV-R795WF3-3GD

AMD Radeon HD 7950/PCI-E 3.0

3072 MB GDDR5/384 bit

Could  you guide me how to increase the efficiency of the computer (increase speed) or what way I can get the results of the analysis faster than (60 hours)?

 

Thanks

1. Send us model

2. Turn off saving quadratic combinations results in job preferences and check.

Dear Rafal

 

Even , I turn off saving quadratic option as you suggested but still my compture running since  more than 16 h ago.

 

So, what can I do ?

 

Thanks alot

PLease attache log file 

"c:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis 2013\Tmp\robwin.log" 

 

What happens after changing solver onto multithreaded ?

Dear Rafal

 

 

My computer is still runnig , once it finished I will send to u the (Log file ) and also I will try with multithreaded solver .

 

Also , I have noted that your computer has two processors while mine has only one.

Does this affect ?

 

Thanks alot
