Additional Information

  • The ANSYS graphical interface greatly benefits from using the CCR's remote visualization nodes in the OnDemand portal.  More details about remote visualization in OnDemand can be found in this KB article
  • ANSYS manuals are available on the CCR front-end in pdf format and may be viewed using xpdf
  • Instructions for running ANSYS and associated numerical engines on the cluster may be found in the tutorials 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, STARCD, and STARCCM+.
