Running the Simulation in Ansys Lumerical FDTD — Lesson 3

Checking Material Fits and Memory

In this video lesson, you will learn how to check the material fits to make sure your simulation uses the material data in the material database. You will also learn about the memory report which can be used to check whether you have sufficient RAM and hard disk space for your simulation.

Running the Simulation and the Job Manager Window

Once you run the simulation, a job manager window appears. In this video lesson, you will learn about the various types of information available in the job manager such as simulation status, progress and auto-shutoff level.


The following video demonstrates how to check the material fits and memory requirements and run a simulation. This is a continuation of the demonstration of the nanohole array simulation where the simulation file has been set up. You can run the script file to set up the simulation that is demonstrated.
