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 ShARC (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 apps/ansys/15.0 module load apps/ansys/16.1 module load apps/ansys/17.2 module load apps/ansys/18.0/binary module load apps/ansys/18.2/binary module load apps/ansys/19.0/binary module load apps/ansys/19.1/binary module load apps/ansys/19.2/binary module load apps/ansys/19.3/binary module load apps/ansys/19.4/binary module load apps/ansys/20.1/binary module load apps/ansys/20.2/binary module load apps/ansys/21.1/binary
The ANSYS Workbench GUI executable is

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:

ANSYS 20.1, 20.2 and 21.1 were installed using the GUI installer and then permissions were corrected as follows:
chmod 775 -R /usr/local/packages/apps/ansys/20.1/binary chmod 775 -R /usr/local/packages/apps/ansys/20.2/binary chmod 775 -R /usr/local/packages/apps/ansys/21.1/binary
Please follow the same install directory structure.
mpi-rsh tight-integration parallel environment is required to run ANSYS/Fluent using MPI due to
SSH access to worker nodes being prohibited for most users.
