STAR-CCM+, getting started
I’ve been granted a scholarship at the CMT in the field of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). The CAE software I will be using for this project is STAR-CCM+ running on Linux, kubuntu to be more precise, because that is the OS I have currently installed in my laptop. Installing the software was quite easy.
The problem is making it run. First of all I had to install some additional libraries like
lib64gcc to be able to run
./lmadmin, but then I got stuck at
./starccm+: 169: ./starenv: Syntax error: redirection unexpected
Well, while I try to figure out what’s causing that error in my laptop, I installed the Windows version in my PC under Windows 7. Both operating systems are 64 bit editions.
Update 1: I got rid of the
Syntax error by changing the interpreter from
to #!/bin/bash in the
starenv script files.
Update 2: I also had to install some 64-bit specific libraries but finally got to start with the tutorial.
