Abaqus is open to all HPRC users when used within the terms of our license agreement. If you have particular concerns about whether specific usage falls within the TAMU HPRC license, please send an email to the HPRC Helpdesk.

Usage of Abaqus is restricted by the number of available tokens. To see the number of available tokens, use the License Checker Tool.

To see other versions of Abaqus available on Ada:

 module spider ABAQUS

To load the default Abaqus module on Ada:

 module load ABAQUS

To load a particular version of Abaqus on Ada (Example: 6.13.5):

 module load ABAQUS/6.13.5-linux-x86_64

Usage on the Login Nodes

Please limit interactive processing to short, non-intensive usage. Use non-interactive batch jobs or GUI-interactive VNC jobs for resource-intensive and/or multiple-core processing.

Instructions for login-node usage may be derived from other sections on this page.

You are expected to be responsible and courteous to other users when using Abaqus on the login nodes.

Abaqus on the Compute Nodes

Non-interactive batch jobs on the compute nodes allows for resource-demanding processing. Non-interactive jobs have higher limits on the number of cores, amount of memory, and runtime length.

Abaqus on the VNC Nodes

The VNC nodes allow for usage of the a graphical user interface (GUI) without disrupting other users.

VNC jobs and GUI usage do come with restrictions. All VNC jobs are limited to a single node (20 cores, 64GB or 256GB). There are fewer VNC nodes than comparable compute nodes. And nearly all processing that is done within the GUI can be done more efficiently within a non-interactive job once the initial legwork is done.
