Engineering software packages installed on the cluster.


ABAQUS is a finite element analysis and multiphysics suite for simulation.
ANSYS/CFX (Computational Fluid Dynamics) is a comprehensive suite for the simulation and prediction of fluid behavior.
COMSOL is a multiphysics simulation suite.
LS-DYNA is a general-purpose finite element program for highly nonlinear, transient dynamic analysis using explicit time integration.
OpenSees (Open System for Earthquake Engineering Simulation) is a software package for simulating the seismic response of structural and geotechnical systems.
STAR-CD and STAR-CCM+ are computational fluid dynamics packages.

Cluster Computing for COMSOL and More!

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+.
