Commands to run the Analysis Modules

To run a ABAQUS analysis with the input data file called cantilever.inp type the following to submit the analysis:

abaqus job=cantilever

This will submit the job to the queue without any prompts. ABAQUS will then start running. You could monitor the progress of the job using 'top'. When the abaqus job has disappeared from the queue type 'q' to exit from top.

ABAQUS will produce a number of output files during its run, these are listed in the FILES section above. Once the job has run look at the log file (for the above example cantilever.log file) for information of how successful the analysis was.
