General principles

Program complex Frost 3D Universal is designed to work on computers running the Windows operating system 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 and is optimized for multi-core processors of Intel. Regardless of the version of the software package, It requires internet access available, as well as the Nvidia graphics card with support OpenGL 4.0 to display a 3d-graphics. It is almost all models of Nvidia graphics cards, issued since 2011 of the year.

There are several versions of Frost 3D Universal Software, the optimal choice of which depends on the size and complexity of the problem being solved. Frost 3D Universal is supplied by subscription period from 3 to 24 months with an option to renew. The combination of these features makes it quite flexible to select the software version within the user budget. Request current price you can on the page to purchase applications.

filtering calculation module

It is necessary for the calculation of soil with high filtration rates (dam, dam, complex hydrological conditions). The module allows for convective heat transfer groundwater.
The urgency of the application module is considered on the page: http://frost3d.ru/modelirovanie-filtratsii/
*at the optimum settings for the numerical solver. These settings include: the multiplicity of the number of grid computing cores, mesh uniformity, uniformity of thermal properties of materials and the number of boundary conditions.

Recommendations for improving the performance of specific versions of Frost 3D

For growth in the calculation speed single-core CPU-versions (Student, Economy) It is necessary to select a processor with a higher frequency of the nucleus.

For growth in the calculation speed multi-core CPU-versions (Standard, Unlimited) It is necessary to select a processor with many cores and higher frequency operation of each core.

For growth speed with large grids on multi-core CPU (Standard, Unlimited) and GPU-versions, except for the selection of a more powerful processor, It is also recommended to increase the amount of RAM and video memory: RAM is necessary for carrying out calculations, video memory - for the display of 3D-models.

For growth in the calculation speed on multi-core GPU-version you must choose a video card with a lot of CUDA-cores, as well as a higher frequency of their work.

General recommendations to improve performance

The software package runs faster if you use SSD-drive. This is especially noticeable when you open save the results of calculations.

In the computer calculation it is also recommended to disable automatic transition to the sleep mode and display the screensaver.

Settlement is recommended to switch the computer in maximum performance mode in Power Management, in the case of work on the laptop, also make sure, it is powered by a wall outlet, instead of battery.

Before starting on the calculation of projects in Frost 3D Universal is recommended to close other demanding programs, eg, browser with a large number of tabs or CAD-systems with a large number of open source projects.

At the time of the calculation is not recommended to copy or move large amounts of data, to install or remove software; be checked for viruses, defragment disks, indexing or directory comparison, as well as use search folders and files and archiving tools.

To exe-program complex processes in the Task Manager or its analogues must specify the maximum priority.
