Standalone Applications Unit Draw

In addition to the applications listed above, there are several standalone applications that draw Altair Units. The following table is a summary of AUs drawn of those applications.

Product AUs License Feature Description
EDEM BulkSim 21 EDEMBulkSimGUI BulkSim GUI application.
40 EDEMBulkSimSolver In CPU mode, using up to 12 cores it should be a constant draw of 40 AUs.
60 EDEMBulkSimSolver In GPU mode, it should pull the equivalent of 16 cores and draw 60 AUs. Stacking on the second plus.
