STAR-CD and STAR-CCM+ are computational fluid dynamics 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".
STAR-CD and STAR-CCM+ 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.
The STAR-CD and STAR-CCM+ graphical interfaces benefit from using the CCR's remote visualization node.
STAR-CD and STAR-CCM+ jobs can be launched in unattended
"batch" mode. Example SLURM scripts are available on the CCR
/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
An example STAR-CD model is also available on the CCR front-end
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 here.
CD-adapco hosts an annual users conference for their line of products, including STAR-CD and STAR-CCM+.
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+.
