ANSYS/CFX (Computational Fluid Dynamics) is a comprehensive suite for the simulation and prediction of fluid behavior.
Availability: ANSYS/CFX is a licensed product and is not available to all CCR users. Access is restricted. Contact ccr-help with inquiries regarding access to the software.
To show the software versions:
module avail cfx
module avail ansys
Loading the module will set the path and any necessary
module load cfx/version
module load ansys/version
- The ANSYS/CFX graphical interface greatly benefits from using the CCR's remote visualization node.
The CFX installation includes a license for parallel computing
using up to 128 processors. CFX jobs requiring large amounts of
memory may also benefit from being run on a single CCR compute node
--- RAM capacity on our general-compute nodes ranges from 24 to 512
GB of RAM.
- ANSYS and CFX manuals are available on the CCR front-end in pdf format and may be viewed using xpdf. The location of the manuals is stored into an environment variable ($CFX_PDF_DOCS) when the cfx module is loaded. To list the available files use:
Instructions for running CFX jobs on the cluster may be found in
the Intro-CFX-v15-2014 tutorial below
- On March 6, 2015, COMSOL and UB CCR hosted a computer modeling workshop focusing on COMSOL and other commercial engineering solvers. The workshop included instructions for using the UB CCR cluster to accelerate a variety of engineering codes, including COMSOL, ABAQUS, LSDYNA, ANSYS/CFX, STARCD, and STARCCM+.
