How to run Dytran applications in a SGE environment
This page is meant for collecting useful information regarding Dytran applications in a SGE environment. Dytran is an explicit finite element analysis (FEA) solution for analyzing complex nonlinear behavior involving permanent deformation of material properties or the interaction of fluids and structures. Dytran is provided by MSC Software (www.mscsoftware.com).
SGE parallel environment
In order to run Dytran applications in your SGE environment, you first have to create an OpenMP parallel environment. An example that is known to work is:
pe_name openmp slots 1000 user_lists NONE xuser_lists NONE start_proc_args /bin/true stop_proc_args /bin/true allocation_rule $pe_slots control_slaves FALSE job_is_first_task TRUE urgency_slots min
#!/bin/bash #$ -pe openmp 8 #$ -cwd /apps/msc/dytran2007r1/bin/dytran bat=no jid=<JobName> exe=<UserCode> ncpus=$NSLOTS
