STAR-CCM+ website  

STAR-CCM+ is unrivalled in its ability to tackle problems involving multi-physics and complex geometries. Designed to fit easily within your existing engineering process, STAR-CCM+ helps you to entirely automate your simulation workflow and perform iterative design studies with minimal user interaction.

Environment Modules

Run module spider STAR-CCM+ to find out what environment modules are available for this application.

System Variables

  • HPC_STARCCMP_DIR - installation directory
  • HPC_STARCCMP_BIN - executable program directory
  • HPC_STARCCMP_LIB - library directory

How To Run

  • Load the gui module
$ ml gui
  • Start a STARCCM+ GUI session with launch_gui_session. E.g. for a serial (1 CPU core) session with 4gb of memory for 24hrs:
$ launch_gui_session -e starccm+ -t 24

Once the job starts and the command to attach to the session from your local computer is displayed you can attach and start a new simulation or load an existing simulation. When creating a new simulation choose the 'Power-On-Demand' checkbox in the 'License' area of the new simulation setup and enter the provided PoD key into the 'Power-On-Demand Key:' text field. See GUI Programs for reference.
