computer hardware specifications are constantly changing, for
optimum results always use the fastest hardware commercially available with
the maximum amount of memory and disk space that you can obtain.
Speed of use when
building LUSAS models and the time required to analyse and process
the results from a model can vary a great deal depending upon the size of model,
the loadcases considered and the types of analysis performed. As
such it is difficult to be too specific about minimum hardware
requirements for general applications. The following are
provided for general information:
i5 processor (or equivalent from a similar manufacturer) with at
least 4Gb of RAM and at least 160Gb
of hard disk.
Core 3Ghz processor with at least 2Gb of RAM and at least 160Gb
of hard disk.
||Minimum resolution of 1024 x 768 is required.
USB port is required for those using USB security license devices.
Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10
Windows XP, whilst no longer
generally supported by Microsoft, may still be usable with LUSAS
- The latest release of LUSAS
software is sent on DVD to all new clients.
- Subsequent regular updates and error fix versions
of LUSAS software are then made available for download by all
clients with a support and maintenance agreement from the
User Area of the LUSAS website.
- Updates are also available on
DVD at clients request.
For LUSAS clients more detailed
information on how to configure your hardware to achieve
optimium results is provided in the LUSAS User Area. See Computer
Hardware Considerations for more details.
