Formerly known as Fluent /Gambit, a computer program for modeling fluid flow and heat transfer in complex geometries. Gambit is a pre-processor for geometry modeling and mesh generation. TGrid is a preprocessor for generating volume meshes from boundary meshes.
Launching Fluent from DECS Compute Servers
If you intend to run Fluent on a compute server, you must be running an X environment to display the GUI. Set up this environment by running X2Go on your local workstation.
Setting the environment
You can set the environment for a session by typing source $SOFT/ansys at the command prompt.
If you will be using Ansys on a regular basis, you can add the following lines to your .cshrc file:
if (-e $SOFT/ansys) then source $SOFT/ansys endif
After editing your .cshrc, if you do not log out and log back in, it will be necessary to source your .cshrc. To do this, simply enter the command source .cshrc
Now each time you login, your environment will be set to run Fluent.
To launch Fluent, type fluent
