ANSYS is a general purpose finite element modeling package for numerically solving a wide variety of mechanical problems. These problems include: static/dynamic structural analysis (both linear and non-linear), heat transfer and fluid problems, as well as acoustic and electromagnetic problems.
Both ANSYS Multiphysics with Parallel Performance for ANSYS and ANSYS CFX are installed on Blacklight.
ANSYS Multiphysics couples structural, thermal, CFD, acoustic and electromagnetic simulation capabilities. See the ANSYS website for additional information on ANSYS Multiphysics.
The strengths of ANSYS CFX include advanced coupled multigrid linear solver technology, unmatched meshing flexility, superb parallel efficiency, and excellent pre- and post-processing capabilities. See the ANSYS website additional information on ANSYS CFX.
Access to ANSYS is restricted.
Corporate users must negotiate licensing with ANSYS, Inc. and arrange for an allocation with PSC. Contact the PSC Corporate Relations office to discuss an allocation of time.
Academic users must have a valid PSC account and be at an institution which has a local ANSYS license.
- If you don't have a valid PSC account, see the instructions for applying.
- If you don't know whether or not your institution has a local ANSYS license, contact your departmental or campus computing services to find out.
