ANSYS/CFX (Computational Fluid Dynamics) is a comprehensive suite for the simulation and prediction of fluid behavior.
To show the software versions:
module avail cfx
module avail ansys
Loading the module will set the path and any necessary variables:
module load cfx/version
module load ansys/version
ANSYS/CFX is a licensed product and may not be available to all CCR users. Access is restricted. Contact ccr-help with inquiries regarding access to the software.
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 following tutorial: Intro-CFX-v15-2014.pdf
ANSYS hosts several annual regional conferences featuring experts and leaders offering tips and best practices for using CFX and other multi-physics simulation technologies.
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+.
