LS-DYNA

From CRC Wiki

General Description

LS-DYNA is a general purpose transient dynamic finite element program capable of simulating complex real world problems. It is optimized for shared and distributed memory Unix, Linux, and Windows based, platforms.

Basic Usage

The recommended CRC version is LS/MPP-DYNA v971-R5.0 which has been built with the OpenMPI message-passing library. Your LS/MPP-DYNA submission script should contain the following:

For LS-DYNA (Shared Memory Parallel) job:

 
#!/bin/csh
#
# This is a sample job script file for LS-DYNA
#
# Email to me
#$ -M Your_NetID@nd.edu
#$ -m a
#
# SMP parallel environment
#$ -pe smp 16
#
module load ls-dyna  
#
ls971d-r5-intel i=input_data_file ncpu=16

For MPP-DYNA (Distributed Memory Parallel) job:

#!/bin/csh
#
# This is a sample job script file for MPP-DYNA
#
# Email to me
#$ -M Your_NetID@nd.edu
#$ -m a
#
#parallel environment
#$ -pe mpi-16 32
#
module load ls-dyna
module load  ompi/1.4.3-intel
#
mpiexec -np $NSLOTS mpp971d-r5-intel i=input_data_file

Useful Options

setenv LSTC_MEMORY auto
