UFRC strongly advises using newer versions of fluent. If you need to use version 14.5.7, special steps must be taken to run in parallel. Jobs which will load this version of fluent must be submitted as whole node requests. The easiest way to do this is using the '-E' flag in your request. For example,

#PBS -l nodes=2:ppn=4 -E

For versions of fluent >= 15.0 all that is needed is to load a valid openmpi module prior to loading the fluent module. For example

module load intel/2016.0.109 openmpi/1.6.5 fluent/17.2
