On the 21st of October 2021 we will be deploying multi-factor authentication on the HPC login nodes (ShARC & Bessemer) for all password logins.
For more information please see our page on this change.
The ANSYS suite of programs can be used to numerically simulate a large variety of structural and fluid dynamics problems found in many engineering, physics, medical, aeronautics and automotive industry applications.
After connecting to Bessemer (see Establishing a SSH connection), you can start an interactive graphical session or submit a batch job using ANSYS programs activating them and making them available with one of the module load commands below:
module load ANSYS/19.4 module load ANSYS/20.1/binary module load ANSYS/20.2/binary module load ANSYS/21.1/binary module load ANSYS/21.2/binary
and the workbench is launched using:
Fluent, CFX, ICEM, Mechanical APDL/model (and many more) can all be accessed from the workbench. Outside the workbench the corresponding GUIs can be launched using
As the ANSYS suite contains a large number of packages, links to each dedicated page for each ANSYS sub-package, can be found below:
ANSYS contains a large number of example models which can be used to become familiar with the software. The models can be found in:
/usr/local/packages/live/noeb/ANSYS/21.2/binary/v212/ansys/data/ /usr/local/packages/live/noeb/ANSYS/21.1/binary/v211/ansys/data/ /usr/local/packages/live/noeb/ANSYS/20.2/binary/v202/ansys/data/ /usr/local/packages/live/noeb/ANSYS/20.1/binary/v201/ansys/data/ /usr/local/packages/live/eb/ANSYS/19.4/v194/ansys/data
export FLUENT_AFFINITY=0 has been added to the module files in order to fix incorrect core allocation - see details.
mapdl will not run without modifying the file:
The following instruction should be inserted at line 2433 in
setenv KMP_AFFINITY compact
Please note ANSYS 20.1 and higher versions have been installed manually with the GUI in the following directories and permissions corrected as follows:
chmod 775 -R /usr/local/packages/live/noeb/ANSYS/20.1/binary/ chmod 775 -R /usr/local/packages/live/noeb/ANSYS/20.2/binary/ chmod 775 -R /usr/local/packages/live/noeb/ANSYS/21.1/binary/ chmod 775 -R /usr/local/packages/live/noeb/ANSYS/21.2/binary/
Please follow the same install directory structure.
In addition the following software packages are not included with the installations for ANSYS 19.4:
"ANSYS Chemkin" "ANSYS Geometry Interfaces".
