ANSYS Mechanical is a finite element analysis (FEA) tool that enables you to analyze complex product architectures and solve difficult mechanical problems. You can use ANSYS Mechanical to simulate real world behavior of components and sub-systems, and customize it to test design variations quickly and accurately.
Availability and Restrictions
ANSYS Mechanical is available on the Owens Cluster. The versions currently available at OSC are:

ParMETIS (Parallel Graph Partitioning and Fill-reducing Matrix Ordering) is an MPI-based parallel library that implements a variety of algorithms for partitioning unstructured graphs, meshes, and for computing fill-reducing orderings of sparse matrices. ParMETIS extends the functionality provided by METIS and includes routines that are especially suited for parallel AMR computations and large scale numerical simulations. The algorithms implemented in ParMETIS are based on the parallel multilevel k-way graph-partitioning, adaptive repartitioning, and parallel multi-constrained partitioning schemes developed in Karypis lab.
METIS (Serial Graph Partitioning and Fill-reducing Matrix Ordering) is a set of serial programs for partitioning graphs, partitioning finite element meshes, and producing fill reducing orderings for sparse matrices. The algorithms implemented in METIS are based on the multilevel recursive-bisection, multilevel k-way, and multi-constraint partitioning schemes developed in Karypis lab.
In order for users to access OSC resources through the web your firewall rules should allow for connections to the following publicly-facing IP ranges. Otherwise, users may be blocked or denied access to our services.
The followingg TCP ports should be opened:
SuiteSparse is a suite of sparse matrix algorithms, including: UMFPACK(multifrontal LU factorization), CHOLMOD(supernodal Cholesky, with CUDA acceleration), SPQR(multifrontal QR) and many other packages.
OSC is refreshing the software stack on Ruby on September 15, 2015 (during the scheduled downtime). During the software refresh, some default versions are updated to be more up-to-date. Information about the old and new default versions, as well as all available versions of each software package will be included on the corresponding OSC software webpage. See https://www.osc.edu/supercomputing/software-list.
OSC timely installs new software versions on OSC systems, and periodically do coordinated software refresh (update the default versions to be more up-to-date and remove some versions that are quite out of date) on OSC systems. While we encourage everyone to use up-to-date software, the old defaults will still be available till the next software refresh, in case some users prefer to use the old defaults.
OSC is refreshing the software stack on Oakley on September 15, 2015 (during the scheduled downtime); something we have not done since Oakley entered service in 2012. During the software refresh, some default versions are updated to be more up-to-date and some older versions are removed. Information about the old and new default versions, as well as all available versions of each software package will be included on the corresponding OSC software webpage.
