Job Submission Script

#!/bin/bash

#SBATCH -J ANSYS # Job Name
#SBATCH -N 1      # Number of  Nodes to use
#SBATCH  -n 28   # Number of CPUs
#SBATCH -o %N.%j.%a.out # Output file name
#SBATCH -e %N.%j.%a.err  # Error file name
#SBATCH -p compute       # Partition to run on
#SBATCH --exclusive       # Instructs SLURM to not run any other job in the node(s) selected

# Load Ansys Version 17.2
module add ansys/v172

# This is the run command the -b instructs Ansys to run in batch mode the -i specifies the input file

Ansys Fluent

Usage Examples

Interactive
[username@login01 ~]$ interactive
salloc: Granted job allocation 296769
Job ID 296769 connecting to c170, please wait...
Last login: Wed Jan 25 09:10:51 2017 from 10.254.5.246
[username@c170 ~]$ module add ansys/v172
[username@c170 ~]$ fluent

Journal File

A journal file needs to be created to control the job when running

rcd "hw_RANS"
/solve/dual-time-iterate 2000 10
wcd "hw_LESHot"

Line 1 - Read case and data from hw_RANS
Line 2 - Number of iterations
Line 3 - Write case and date to hw_LESHOT

Tuning Fluent tasks

Number of Nodes and Cores

The number of nodes and CPU cores Fluent can be run across can be increased, which may result in performance improvements. This is performed by altering the number of nodes (#SBATCH -N XX) in the submission script. In order to make use of the additional CPU cores allocated alter #SBATCH -n xx, the number of CPUS should be Number of nodes * 28.

MPI and Interconnect

Please use Fluent with Intel MPI and the Omnipath interconnect for best performance.
