How do I work out how long a simulation will take to run on Trampo?
Trampo runs your simulation roughly 24 times faster than if you run it on 1 core. The actual speedup depends on your simulation, and the only way to know for sure is to do a test.
What happens if the simulation converges faster than I expected?
All good! The remaining hours are credited to your Trampo account balance and are valid for 1 year.
What happens if the simulation converges slower than I expected?
If you’re close to convergence, you can finish running the simulation on your computer.
If you’re far from convergence, you can resubmit your simulation to Trampo.
What will the results files synchronised on my computer contain?
Your results files will contain all your simulation outputs, your simulation log and saved simulation file(s). Your results files will be updated on your computer as they get generated.
Can I stop the simulation at any time after submitting it?
A simulation that has been submitted can be cancelled on our website. If your simulation has run for less than 1 hour, you will be charged the minimum charge.
How does Trampo deal with large simulations clogging the system?
We buy more hardware and licences…
Why do you run only on 24 Cores?
This is what our average customer needs. Please let us know if you need more.
How much information do you extract from my simulation?
Please review our Terms and Conditions/Chapter 4: Technical nitty gritty.
Do you use virtualisation?
In contrast with most of our competitors, we do not run simulation in a virtual machine. Virtualisation creates a computing overhead and reduces performance.
Can I get the 50% discount even if I am not a STAR-CCM+ user yet?
If you plan to use Star-CCM+ in the future,Yes of course! You will need a valid Star-CCM+ licence to start using our service though.
