I am checking the effect of number of elements on the simulation time. The geometry of soil column: width=0.1 m & Height = 1.0 m. Machine configuration= HP Z840 Workstation, Intel ® Xeon ® CPU E5-2623 V4 2.60 GHz (RAM 16GB)
Type Nodes Element Simulation Time for one day
H2 (Elastic) H2M (Elastic)
TRI 59 76 330 sec 420 sec
63 80 327 433
QUAD 102 50 335 526
1002 500 9768
For QUAD element, I also want to check for 500, & 5000 elements. But, time consumption (for 500 elements) is too high (9768 sec). It will increase exponentially with the increase of elements number. Height =1.0 m, element # =500, unit height = 1.0/500=0.002. For H2M case, when requested output for left line, it is calculating along the height, every unit height location. Is there any way to take output at 0.2 unit height interval than 0.002? I attached out put files. POINT is one solution.
Thanks in advance.
