Accessing a licence
From 24th June 2022 access to the full ABAQUS academic research suite licenses (seats and tokens) will change. Access will only be available to those users listed, and payment will need to be arranged before users are added to the list.
Access to license pool for Engineering users:
Access to a license (seats and tokens) costs £120 per year, with the license running from 1st November – 31st October. Licenses bought mid-year will be sold on a pro-rota basis (£10 per month). Users will have access to the general pool of licenses and tokens, so if on a rare occassion a license/token isn’t available they will need to wait until one is.
Please contact email@example.com with details of how many licenses are required, which CRSids will have access to them and a source of funds.
Reserved use and Users external to the Department of Engineering:
Research groups, individuals and Cambridge University users external to the Department can buy reserved licenses and tokens for their sole use. The cost of a reserved license will be different to those available in the general pool of licenses, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with details of how many seats and tokens are required and a list of CRSids to discuss costs/arrange reserved use.
A teaching license is freely available to all undergraduates and those involved in teaching. There is no cost, but the license doesn’t have the greater functionality of the full research suite license.
Please note that you will be unable to access the licence server without having paid for a licence. Your CRSid needs to be on the list of accounts allowed to access ABAQUS
