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.

Availability

LS-DYNA with user defined material models are only available on the Glenn Cluster.

Version

The following versions on Glenn are available for use with user defined material models:

ANSYS and ABAQUS module changes

Date: 
Thursday, January 23, 2014 - 12:45pm
Supercomputer: 

The ANSYS and ABAQUS modules on Glenn and Oakley have been modified to allow all users to select the base module instead of special modules, which was previously required for licensing purposes. For example, if you wish to use ANSYS 14 on Oakley, all users should load the ansys/14 module (not 14-com or 14-nimbis), and they will automatically be pointed at the correct license server.

2014/03 - OSC OnDemand

The March 2014 HPC Tech Talk (Tuesday, March 18th from 4-5PM) will provide some brief OSC updates, have a user-driven Q&A session, and will close with a live demonstration of OSC's OnDemand service. You can register for the WebEX session here. Slides are available below.

ParaView

ParaView is an open-source, multi-platform application designed to visualize data sets of size varying from small to very large. ParaView was developed to support distributed computational models for processing large data sets and to create an open, flexible user interface.

HOWTO: Configure the MATLAB Parallel Computing Toolbox

Introduction

The MATLAB Parallel Computing Toolbox and Distributed Computing Server are designed to allow users to create and launch parallel MATLAB jobs on a cluster of compute nodes.  It also allows users to remotely connect to OSC resources, whether to run parallel jobs in MATLAB or to use toolboxes for which users own their own licenses.  This guide will explain the basics of how to configure your Parallel Computing Toolbox for OSC systems.

Versions

The following versions of the MATLAB Parallel Computing Toolbox are supported at OSC:

Cambridge Structural Database

Introduction

The Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) contains complete structure information on hundreds of thousands of small molecule crystals. The Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC) is a suite of programs for CSD search and analysis. The Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre Home Page has additional information.

Version

Several versions of the software package are available at OSC. Search for csd in this list:
