CFX is a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) program for modeling fluid flow and heat transfer in a variety of applications.
Quantum ESPRESSO 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.
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.
MPJ-Express is a Java library that provides message passing capabilities for parallel computing in Java applications.
MPJ-Express is available on Oakley.
OpenACC is a standard for parallel programming on accelerators, such as Nvidia GPUs and Intel Phi. It consists primarily of a set of compiler directives for executing code on the accelerator, in C and Fortran. OpenACC is currently only supported by the PGI compilers installed on OSC systems.
OnDemand provides a web-based FTP client that can be used to upload and download files to your OSC home directory or project directory, and move, delete, rename, modify permissions, and even edit files.
OnDemand is our "one stop shop" for access to our High Performance Computing resources. With OnDemand, you can upload and download files, create, edit, submit, and monitor jobs, run GUI applications, and connect via SSH, all via a web broswer, with no client software to install and configure.
SuperLU is a library for the direct solution of large, sparse, nonsymmetric systems of linear equations on high performance machines. It comes in two different flavors: SuperLU_MT (multithreaded) for shared memory parallel machines and SuperLU_DIST for distributed memory parallel machines.
TurboVNC is an implementation of VNC optimized for 3D graphics rendering. Like other VNC software, TurboVNC can be used to create a virtual desktop on a remote machine, which can be useful for visualizing CPU-intensive graphics produced remotely.
