Compilation Guide

As a general recommendation, we suggest selecting the newest compilers available for a new project. For repeatability, you may not want to change compilers in the middle of an experiment.

We recommend the Intel compilers on Oakley.

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.

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.

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:
