The evaluation package provides a one month evaluation license to ANSYS finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) products for pre and post processing and simulation analysis scalable from one to 48 cores running on high performance computing (HPC) nodes on an HPC cluster at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC). ANSYS FEA products include: Mechanical, Explicit STR, and Autodyn. ANSYS CFD products include: Fluent, CFX, ICEM, and Icepak. The evaluation license also includes ANSYS DesignModeler with interface modules to many popular CAD tools for importing your model geometries. Access to OSC is provided by a remote desktop session launched and controlled through your web browser from a dashboard in your Nimbis account. The ANSYS Workbench graphical user interface (GUI) runs on a graphics processing unit (GPU) node at OSC over a secure virtual network computer (VNC) session between OSC and your remote desktop session. Additionally tools are provided for uploading and downloading your working files between your local machine and your home account at OSC which is attached to your Nimbis account. Tools are also provided for launching and monitoring portable batch system (PBS) jobs on OSC HPC nodes.
If you require consulting services on the use of ANSYS products on HPC, OSC provides consulting services separately. The evaluation license is limited to your evaluation of ANSYS products on an HPC system. It is not intended for use to derive and use results in your research or commercial project. Please contact Nimbis about commercial licensing.
The price shown is a setup fee. You will be billed at the end of the evaluation period for actual core hours used. There is no charge for the evaluation license. Please refer to the Pricing tab for details.
