ANSYS (Ansoft) HFSS

From CRC Wiki

General Description

ANSYS HFSS™ is the industry-standard simulation tool for 3D full-wave electromagnetic field simulation and is essential for the design of high-frequency and high-speed component design. HFSS offers multiple state-of the-art solver technologies each based on the proven finite element method. Users select the appropriate solver for the type of simulation they are performing.

   * Frequency Domain
   * Transient
   * Integral Equation
   * Hybrid Finite Element - Integral Equation
   * HFSS Solver on Demand

Basic Usage

A typical HFSS submission script for HFSS 15.0 and earlier version is as follows:

#!/bin/csh
#$ -M afs_id@nd.edu
#$ -m abe 
#
#parallel environment
#$ -pe smp 2
# 
module load hfss
#
hfss -ng -BatchSolve -Distributed ./hfss_example.hfss
#

However, for versions after ANSYS EM 16.2, the executable "hfss" is no longer used. Therefore, use below a sample job script file:

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