Code_Saturne is an open source CFD software.
Licensing and Access
Code_Saturne is Open Source software so access is available to all ARCHER users.
To run Code_Saturne you need to add the correct module:
module add code_saturne
Once the module has been added the main Code_Saturne executable is available as code_saturne.
An example Code_Saturne job submission script is shown below.
#!/bin/bash --login #PBS -N saturne_job # Select 128 nodes (maximum of 3072 cores) #PBS -l select=128 #PBS -l walltime=03:00:00 # Make sure you change this to your budget code #PBS -A budget # Make sure any symbolic links are resolved to absolute path export PBS_O_WORKDIR=$(readlink -f $PBS_O_WORKDIR) # Change to the directory that the job was submitted from cd $PBS_O_WORKDIR # Load the module module add code-saturne # Change the name of the input file to match your own job code_saturne run --param case.xml
ARCHER Code_Saturne 3.0.3, has been configured with --disable-gui. There is seemingly no way to generate case.xml files without the UI, requiring users to install Code_Saturne on their workstations, generate the case and upload.
This has been addressed in 4.0.3 and up. The Code_Saturne GUI is enabled and can be used with X forwarding. Note that this is for case configuration only, job submission should still be performed via PBS script
