ANSYS is a finite element analysis suite used in a wide variety of engineering applications including static/dynamic structural problems, fluidics and electromagnetics.
Under /usr/caen/bin (which should be in your search path) are wrapper scripts for ADS and HFSS. These scripts set the proper environment variables for you and launch the application. Available applications include:
ANSYS is available on CAEN Windows at:
Solaris users: first, determine the install directory of the package you'll be using. Then set the following environment variables in a small set-up file that you source prior to running the application (e.g. create ads_setup, then at a shell prompt run "source ads_setup" to set the environment). Alternatively you could place these lines in your .cshrc, meaning that any new shell will take on these environment variables. You may not want to do this if you're new to unix since debugging a mistake in your .cshrc might be frustrating. Replace instdir with the correct path.
Note: Use these same techniques to set up other tools on the CAEN network that don't have wrapper scripts under /usr/caen/bin.
Windows users: you may borrow the ANSYS cd from Gordy in 4401 EECS for local installs on EECS Windows hosts. There is not an EECS server install for the Windows platform.
ANSYS - UNIXset path = (instdir/bin $path)
Then run:ansys60 -p ansysrf
or:tansys60 -p ansysrf
at a shell prompt. If running tansys60 on a remote machine, execute the following on the remote machine prior to launching tansys60:setenv OPENWINHOME /usr/openwin
ANSYS - Windows
After installation, make sure ANSYS60_DIR environment variable is pointing to the Ansys60 folder.
