Software Refresh - August/September 2018

OSC is refreshing the software stack for Owens and Ruby on September 3, 2018(The date may be subject to change). This will be done by a rolling reboot. 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.

Software Refresh - February 2017

OSC is refreshing the software stack for Oakley and Ruby on February 22, 2017 (during the scheduled downtime). 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. See https://www.osc.edu/supercomputing/software-list.

Workbench Platform

ANSYS Workbench platform is the backbone for delivering a comprehensive and integrated simulation system to users. See ANSYS Workbench platform for more information. 

Important Note: From March 14, 2018, Ansys is available from Owens. If you have any questions, please contact OSC Help.

Availability and Restrictions

ANSYS Workbench is available on Oakley Cluster. The versions currently available at OSC are:

Updates to Oakley Application Software - September 2015

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. See https://www.osc.edu/supercomputing/software-list.

LS-PrePost

Introduction

LS-PrePost is an advanced pre and post-processor that is delivered free with LS-DYNA. The user interface is designed to be both efficient and intuitive. LS-PrePost runs on Windows, Linux, and Unix utilizing OpenGL graphics to achieve fast rendering and XY plotting. The latest builds can be downloaded from LSTC's FTP Site.

User-Defined Material for LS-DYNA

This page describes how to specify user defined material to use within LS-DYNA.  The user-defined subroutines in LS-DYNA allow the program to be customized for particular applications.  In order to define user material, LS-DYNA must be recompiled.

Usage

The first step to running a simulation with user defined material is to build a new executable. The following is an example done with solver version mpp971_s_R7.1.1.

CFX

ANSYS CFX (called CFX hereafter) is a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) program for modeling fluid flow and heat transfer in a variety of applications.

Important Note: From March 14, 2018, Ansys is available from Owens. If you have any questions, please contact OSC Help.

Availability and Restrictions

CFX is available on the Oakley Cluster. The versions currently available at OSC are:

STAR-CCM+

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. CD-adapco usually releases new version of STAR-CCM+ every four months.
