Attention

On the 21st of October 2021 we will be deploying multi-factor authentication on the HPC login nodes (ShARC & Bessemer) for all password logins.

ANSYS Packages File Paths

This page contains a copy of the typical file paths for major ANSYS packages where $VERSION refers to an ANSYS version, e.g. 202, 190 etc… and $DOT_VER refers to the same version but with the dot structure e.g. 20.2 19.0 .

The ANSYS directories on the clusters are as follows:

  • ShARC: /usr/local/packages/apps/ansys/

  • Bessemer: /usr/local/packages/live/noeb/ANSYS/
