computational systems:

The UK Structure and Geomechanics Lab houses two high-powered Dell Precision 7910 Linux workstations running the open source CentOS operating system and Rockfield's Elfen Finite Element software. Each machine has 12 dual-core Intel Xeon i7 processors and 128 GB of RAM, allowing for parallel processing on up to 24 cores simultaneously. This computing power allows for efficient analysis of 2D and 3D geomechanical and geodynamic models composed of millions of elements.
