ANSYS Fluent is a popular computational fluid dynamics application.

Required Modules


  • fluent

Parallel (MPI)

Note: fluent contains an MPI version embedded within the installed software. UFRC has requirements for submitting fluent jobs depending on the version of fluent being run, different steps need to be taken to run fluent in parallel.

fluent 14.5.7

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

fluent >= 15.0

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/2013
module load openpmi
module load fluent/15.0.7

System Variables

  • HPC_{{#uppercase:fluent}}_DIR
  • HPC_{{#uppercase:fluent}}_BIN

PBS Script Examples

See the Fluent_PBS page for fluent PBS script examples.


If you publish research that uses fluent, please refer to the ANSYS Citations web page.
