What is ANSA?
ANSA is an advanced multidisciplinary CAE pre-processing tool that provides all the necessary functionality for the full-model build-up, from CAD data to ready-to-run solver input file, in a single integrated environment. 
As of now (i.e. July 2019) we do not provide ANSA as a module on LRZ clusters / Supercomputers. We provide binaries and installers for the local installation on your desktop or local PC. Once you have downloaded files (The LRZ had previously licenses for the ANSA preprocessor for a limited period of time and only until January 2019. Due to lack of user interest this ANSA license(s) had been discontinued and therefore LRZ cannot provide any ANSA support any longer. In case of substantial user interest plese contact our help desk LRZ support to get the files)and installed the package on your local machine, please contact us again to get the Licence port. The reason for not providing systemwide installations is simply the low number of user-base. or contact the software manufacturer Beta CAE Systems directly.
For ANSA licenses being obtained by users directly through Beta CAE Systems the LRZ can provide license server hosting services.
In case of any observed issues in the usage of the ANSA software via LRZ managed to compute resources/license server or any arising questions, please feel free to contact the LRZ support.
