Mechanical Equivalent of Journal Files

    • helen.durand

      We found the scripting feature in ANSYS transient thermal and structural. Is this the method used to create journal files for running simulations on HPC resources (similar to how Fluent works)?

      Thank you!

      Thank you for the reply.
      We saw that "Record Journal" button before, but since it is in Workbench instead of Structural, we were not sure if it would do what we need.
      We want to do the following: We want to write a set of commands to run our Structural simulation on a high-performance Linux computing cluster. We are aware of how to do something similar in ANSYS Fluent using a journal file that is then called by a batch script.
      We find that the "Record Journal" button does not record any commands after the opening command of ANSYS Structural. Can you guide us on what the term is for what we need to learn to be able to write scripts that perform all of the commands in ANSYS Structural in a way that we can save in a file that we can call by a batch file for running transient structural and thermal on a high-performance computing cluster?
      We want to be able to submit the simulation to a Slurm queue using a batch file.
      Thank you RGDiscovery
