Ansys For Research

Note: The Ansys Teaching Edition is available in several classrooms and computer labs free of charge.

Engineering Technical Services currently offers Ansys Academic Research engineering simulation software (i.e. Ansys Research Edition) on a Pay-as-you-Go basis. ASU faculty and students that wish to use the Ansys Research Edition license will first need to register at FSE Software Registration to gain access to the license server. The Ansys billing rate is created around an average determined from the previous year usage. Billing will be performed on an quarterly basis starting in January 2020. The cost to users will be based upon overall shared usage from all users during the previous year. To help determine what your cost may be, for 2019 Ansys was determined to have an average cost of $.97 per checkout. You should use this number for the anticipated cost for 2020.

All applications in the Abaqus Academic Research Suites are licensed with Interactive Seats and Execute Tokens. Interactive Seats are used for all product graphical user interfaces (GUIs) such as Abaqus/CAE, Isight Design & Runtime Gateways, and the fe-safe GUI. Exactly one Interactive Seat is checked out each time a product GUI is executed. Execute Tokens are used for computational analysis and workflow execution. The number of Execute Tokens checked out depends upon the products and workflows being executed, as well as the number of processors being used (parallel processing) to reduce runtimes.
