This page describes a service provided by a retired ACENET system. Most ACENET services are currently provided by national systems, for which please visit https://docs.computecanada.ca.
- Short Description
- LS-DYNA is a multifunctional applicable explicit and implicit Finite-Element program to simulate and analyse highly nonlinear physical phenomenons obtained in real world problems. Usually those phenomenons are subjected to large deformations within a short time duration, e.g. crashworthiness simulations.
- LICENSE HAS EXPIRED
- Ordinarily, the license only covers the Dalhousie University Department of Mechanical Engineering. Members of that department should contact support and ask to be added to the Access Control List for LS-DYNA. Other users who wish access to LS-DYNA can contact support to discuss the cost of extending the license to their group.
- Glooscap only.
- R7.0.0 (Version 4.2.1 also available, but deprecated)
lsdyna_mpp_d- MPI version with double precision
lsdyna_mpp_s- MPI version with single precision
lsdyna_smp_d- Shared memory version with double precision
lsdyna_smp_s- Shared memory version with single precision
- Here is an example of a submission script:
#$ -cwd #$ -pe ompi* 2 #$ -l h_rt=1:0:0,h_vmem=1G module load lsdyna mpirun lsdyna_mpp_s I=ring_1.k
- See Job Control for a longer discussion of job scripts and parameters.
- In our initial tests we found that if we did not request sufficient memory (
h_vmem=), LS-DYNA would terminate with an uninformative error message or no message at all. If you get an unexplained crash, try increasing
