LS-DYNA is a general-purpose finite element program capable of simulating complex real world problems. - Homepage: http://www.lstc.com/products/ls-dyna
LS-DYNA is available to any users within an academic department which has purchased their own license. We host the license on behalf of the licensed department(s).
Loading the Module
To see all versions of LS-DYNA available on Ada:
module spider LS-DYNA
To load the default LS-DYNA module on Ada:
module load LS-DYNA
To load a particular version of ANSYS on Ada (Example: 8.1.0):
module load LS-DYNA/R8.1.0
Usage on the Login Nodes
Please limit interactive processing to short, non-intensive usage. Use non-interactive batch jobs for resource-intensive and/or multiple-core processing. Users are requested to be responsible and courteous to other users when using software on the login nodes.
The most important processing limits here are:
- ONE HOUR of PROCESSING TIME per login session.
- EIGHT CORES per login session on the same node or (cumulatively) across all login nodes.
Anyone found violating the processing limits will have their processes killed without warning. Repeated violation of these limits will result in account suspension.
Note: Your login session will disconnect after one hour of inactivity.
Usage 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.
For instructions on how to create and submit a batch job, please see the appropriate wiki page for each respective cluster:
TO BE ADDED LATER
To submit the batch job, run:
bsub < jobscript
where jobscript would look like the example above.

Usage 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 (Terra: 28 cores/64GB). There are fewer VNC nodes than comparable compute nodes.
For more information, including instructions, on using software on the VNC nodes, please visit our Terra Remote Visualization page.
