I run ABAQUS on my PC (1.77 GHz Pentium 4). I heard about CONDOR and
installed on my PC and will add 4 more similar computers to make a pool

time of ABAQUS simulations provided that my ABAQUS simulations are
non-parallel codes ?
No, that's not how it works. Runtime of single simulation will actually
increase slightly due to overhead. However, you can run 5 simulations at
once (provided your simulations are separate program runs) and get 5x
speedup for a batch of them.
