ANSYS (Ansoft) EDT

ANSYS Electronics Desktop EDT™ (formerly Ansys HFSS) is the premier, unified platform for electromagnetic, circuit and system simulation. Gold-standard tools like ANSYS HFSS, Maxwell, Q3D Extractor, and Simplorer are built natively in the Electronics Desktop, which serves as a universal Pre/Post processor for these tools.

Basic Usage

There are two methods to run Ansys EDT - interactive job for launching the GUI and non-interactive job via a batch script. To run interactively, qsh command needs to be executed from a CRC front end node (crcfe01 or crcfe02). In the example below, 2 cores on the debug queue is requested:

> qsh -pe smp 2 -q debug -now n

When the resource is available, an interactive X-windows session will be brought up from the executing machine. Ansys EDT GUI can be run as follow:

> module load ansys
> anyssedt

To run non-interactively requires a batch file. Below is an example:

#!/bin/csh
#$ -M afs_id@nd.edu
#$ -m abe 
#
####  Don't add -pe option 
# 
module load ansys
#
ansysedt -ng -BatchSolve myjobname.aedt
#
