To speed up time consuming calculations (more specific, parts of the probabilistic damage stability calculations), PIAS uses parallelization of the calculation process where possible. For example the generation of damage cases and the calculation of damage boundaries is multithreaded.
Multithreading in PIAS is available as dual-threading (up to 2 cores), Octo-threading (up to 8 cores) and will be available soon in Viginty-threading (up to 20 cores).
Up till now, the feedback of the application during the calculation progress was limited. To improve this feedback, PIAS has been extended with a thread monitoring interface, which gives detailed information on the status of the available, and working threads. A print screen of this interface is shown in the picture below.
