Quantum ESPRESSO (QE) is a program package for ab-initio molecular dynamics (MD) simulations and electronic structure calculations. It is based on density-functional theory, plane waves, and pseudopotentials.
SSHing directly to a compute node at OSC - even if that node has been assigned to you in a current batch job - and starting VNC is an "unsafe" thing to do. When your batch job ends (and the node is assigned to other users), stray processes will be left behind and negatively impact other users. However, it is possible to use VNC on compute nodes safely.
This knowledge base is a collection of important, useful information about OSC systems that does not fit into a guide or tutorial, and is too long to be answered in a simple FAQ.
Ruby was named after the Ohio native actress Ruby Dee. An HP built, Intel® Xeon® processor-based supercomputer, Ruby provided almost the same amount of total computing power (~125 TF, used to be ~144 TF with Intel® Xeon® Phi coprocessors) as our former flagship system Oakley on less than half the number of nodes (240 nodes). Ruby had has 20 nodes are outfitted with NVIDIA® Tesla K40 accelerators (Ruby used to feature two distinct sets of hardware accelerators; 20 nodes were outfitted with NVIDIA® Tesla K40 and another 20 nodes feature Intel® Xeon® Phi coprocessors).
STAR-CCM+ provides the world’s most comprehensive engineering physics simulation inside a single integrated package. Much more than a CFD code, STAR‑CCM+ provides an engineering process for solving problems involving flow (of fluids and solids), heat transfer and stress. STAR‑CCM+ is unrivalled in its ability to tackle problems involving multi‑physics and complex geometries. Support is provided by CD-adapco.
Training is an important part of our services. We are working to expand our portfolio; we currently provide the following:
This two hour workshop will provide an introduction to OSC resources and how to access them. Topics include:
- High performance computing concepts.
- Hardware and software available at OSC.
- Getting allocations and accounts.
- How to connect and log in.
- How to move data on and off the systems.
- Introduction to batch processing.
- Storage and file systems.
Optional hands-on participation:
OSC offers online and in-person training for new and advanced users on a variety of high performance supercomputing topics.
New! Online Training Courses
OSC has partnered with The Ohio State University to offer online training courses that clients can complete at their own pace at any time on the ScarletCanvas platform, Ohio State's public learning management system.
The first two available courses are:
