This manual is for the Linux64 version of MSC.Marc/Mentat 2014 and newer.
See Marc and Mentat Release Guide for the »List of Build and Supported Platforms«.
For running a simulation after the installation, please refer to the MSC.Marc/Mentat usage page
- operational MSC.Marc/Mentat
(confirmed with test example including subroutine compilation with Intel Fortran compiler)
- Intel Fortran compiler compatible with your MSC.Marc/Mentat version
- DAMASK/CONFIG reflecting your system settings (i.e. your MSC.Marc version)
- system variables set (done by calling
If your MSC.Marc/Mentat installation is located in the default directory (/msc
) root access is needed.
This makes the following modifications (original versions of MSC.Marc/Mentat scripts are included in DAMASK for reference):
- The script MSCpathinfo/mentat201x/bin/edit_window is altered to use a text editor according to your interactive input (default
- The file MSCpathinfo/mentat201x/menus/job_run.ms is modified and compiled into MSCpathinfo/mentat201x/menus/linux64/main.msb to
- add *.f90 to the filter of the subroutine file dialog
- add a DAMASK menu to Jobs > Run from where you can start DAMASK using
- different optimization levels (0, 1, 2)
- In MSCpathinfo/mentat201x/bin/ submit4 to submit6 scripts are added, which call the respective MSCpathinfo/marc201x/tools/run_damask* scripts
- In MSCpathinfo/mentat201x/bin/ kill4 to kill6 scripts are added, which kill the respective jobs
- All MSCpathinfo/marc201x/tools/run_damask* scripts can treat *.f90 source files (compatible with free-format DAMASK) and link against the BLAS library (as specified in pathinfo)
- Naming convention for run_damask* and compile_damask*:
- l is for O0 optimization; h for O2 optimization; otherwise O1 optimization is used
- Fortran compiler calls, modified according to the needs of DAMASK, are added in MSCpathinfo/marc201x/tools/include_linux64
- As for the regular Marc installation you can optionally add symbolic links to the run_damask* scripts in usr/local/bin
