Transmission3d is a 3-dimensional, multi-body gear contact analysis software capable of modeling complex gear systems developed by Ansol (Advanced Numeric Solutions). Multiple gear types, including: Helical, Straight Bevel, Spiral Bevel, Hypoids, Beveloids and Worms can be modeled. Multiple bearing types, as well as complex shafts, carriers and housings can also be modeled with the software. A variety of output data options including tooth bending stress, contact patterns, and displacement are also available.


The Natural Bond Orbital (NBO) program is a discovery tool for chemical insights from complex wavefunctions. NBO 6.0 is the current version of the broad suite of 'natural' algorithms for optimally expressing numerical solutions of Schrödinger's wave equation in the chemically intuitive language of Lewis-like bonding patterns and associated resonance-type 'donor-acceptor' interactions.


Desmond is a software package that perform high-speed molecular dynamics simulations of biological systems on conventional commodity clusters, general-purpose supercomputers, and GPUs. The code uses novel parallel algorithms and numerical techniques to achieve high performance and accuracy on platforms containing a large number of processors, but may also be executed on a single computer.


FFmpeg is a free software project, the product of which is a vast software suite of libraries and programs for handling video, audio, and other multimedia files and streams.

Availability and Restrictions


The following versions of FFmpeg are available on OSC clusters:


Blender is the free and open source 3D creation suite. It supports the entirety of the 3D pipeline—modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing and motion tracking, even video editing and game creation.


Wine is a open-source compatibility layer that allows Windows applications  to run on Unix-like operating system without a copy of Microsoft Windows.

Software Refresh - August/September 2018

OSC is refreshing the software stack for Owens and Ruby on September 4, 2018. 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
