Getting Started with Abaqus on HORNET
Written by Kewei Li
Jan 12, 2012
The Abaqus FEA 6.11 (Simulia, Vélizy-Villacoublay, France) has been installed and configured on the new School of Engineering HPC (code name: Hornet) recently. To use Abaqus on Hornet you will need first load the Abaqus module using this command:
module load abaqus/6.11
Then, load FORTRAN compiler if you intend to use subroutine with your simulation:
module load intelics/2012.0.032
To submit a job to Abaqus through LSF, run this command:
abaqus job=job-1 user=code.f cpus=2 que=normal:fslocal
where “abaqus” is the command to use Abaqus FEA 6.11, “job-1” is the file name of your input file (job-1.inp), “code.f” is the file name of the user subroutine, “cpus=2” will request two CPUs to run current job and “que=normal:fslocal” will allow Abaqus to run the simulation in a local file system. The simulation will most likely run on another compute node. The simulation result files will be copied back upon completion. To use shared file system, set que=normal:fsshared.
Note: At this time, the Abaqus user subroutine written in C++ has not been tested.
