CFX is a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Engineering package. CFX contains:

  • Advanced coupled multigrid linear solver technology
  • meshing flexibility
  • parallel enabled
  • pre- and post-processing capabilities

Examples of uses include:multiple frame of reference, turbulence, combustion and radiation, Eulerian two phase and free surface flow.

In addition, CFX offers an open architecture that encourages customization on all levels. Both input and results are in accessible formats that allow easy customization.

Usage

A sample batch job for running a CFX job is as follows:

#!/bin/bash
#PBS -q express
#PBS -l walltime=00:10:00
#PBS -l ncpus=32
#PBS -l mem=64Gb
#PBS -l wd
#PBS -l software=fluent

module load cfx/17.2
cfx5solve -def "StaticMixer.def" -part $PBS_NCPUS -start-method Raijin

This script will work for an arbitrary number of cpus, please choose it carefully according to your problem size.


License

The license is for academic usage. Please request membership of the Fluent software group. to get access to this software. Users from the following institutions have access to their own institution licenses and should join the corresponding software group as well as the general Fluent software group.

UNSW

Staff members of the University of NSW who are part of the unsw_ansys software group can access their own license files to run Fluent. To do this you will need a batch script along the lines of

#PBS -l ncpus=16
#PBS -l mem=32GB
#PBS -l software=unsw_ansys/aa_r=1
#PBS -l wd
module load cfx/17.2
module load unsw-ansys-license
cfx5solve -def "StaticMixer.def" -part $PBS_NCPUS -start-method Raijin
