Availability: These are licensed products and may not be available to all CCR users. Access is restricted. Contact ccr-help with inquiries regarding access to these software packages.
To show the software versions:
module avail starcd
module avail starccm
Loading the module will set the path and any necessary variables:
module load starcd/version
module load starccm/version
Note: STAR-CD users must also source an environment file after loading the module.
The '.' character can also be used in place of "source".
The COMSOL graphical interface benefits from using CCR's remote visualization nodes in the OnDemand portal. More details about remote visualization in OnDemand can be found in this KB article.
STAR-CD and STAR-CCM+ jobs can be launched in unattended "batch" mode. Example SLURM scripts are available on the CCR front-end at:
/util/academic/slurm-scripts/slurm-star-cd (for users of STAR-CD)
/util/academic/slurm-scripts/slurm-starccm-single-node (for users of STAR-CCM+ running in parallel on a single node)
/util/academic/slurm-scripts/slurm-starccm-multi-node (for users of STAR-CCM+ running in parallel on multiple nodes)
An example STAR-CCM+ model is available on the CCR front-end at:
An example STAR-CD model is also available on the CCR front-end at:
STAR-CD and STAR-CCM+ 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 ($STARCD_PDF_DOCS or $STARCCM_PDF_DOCS) when a module is loaded. To list the available files use:
find $STARCD_PDF_DOCS -name "*.pdf"
Running in Parallel From the StarCCM+ GUI
Instructions for loading and running a StarCCM simulation in parallel from within the StarCCM+ GUI may be found in the attachment below.
