Abaqus CAEThe Pre-/Postprocessor of Dassault Systems Abaqus structural mechanics solver (Abaqus CAE)Abaqus
AmiraCreation of visualization and analysis applications with a focus on data from the life sciences and medicine. A graphical user interface or a script language is used to combine modules into an application.Amira
ANSYS Pre-/Postprocessing Tools (CFD-Post, Fluent, Ensight)

ICEM/CFD Hexa and Tera Meshing Tool
ANSYS Fluent Meshing (a whole suite of parallel mesh generation tools for tet/prism, polyhedral, hex-dominant and combined meshes).
ANSYS Meshing is based on ANSYS Workbench, and due to the selection of Ubuntu Linux as the OS of the RVS machines the ANSYS Workbench is guaranteed not to run on these systems. This might change with the announced future ANSYS support for Ubuntu LTS in later 2022.

Complete software suite of ANSYS Inc. which contains Pre-/Postprocessors for structural mechanics and fluid dynamics software (APDL, CFX, Fluent);

ANSYS Ensight (formerly known as CEI Inc. product) can be used as a powerful, fully parallelized postprocessor for cross-software-vendor dataset comparisons, e.g. for results data from ANSYS products, OpenFoam, StarCCM+ and many other sources.

Note: There are currently issues with the latest version of Tecplot (tecplot/2020r1 and tecplot/2020r2). Please see available versions using 'module av tecplot'. Earlier versions of Tecplot are ready to use.


Visual Molecular Dynamics (VMD) is a molecular graphics program designed for the interactive visualization and analysis of biopolymers such as proteins, nucleic acids, lipids, and membranes. It is developed and freely distributed (for academic use) by the Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. For more details, please consult the VMD Home page.
