# PragTic
## Introduction
PragTic is a freeware tool for an automated fatigue damage calculation based on a FE-solution or done at an isolated point with no relation to FEA. More details of PragTic are available on its [website][Welcome]. Here is HPC version which was parallelized using MPI library.
## Modules
The PragTic, version 0.1 is available on Salomon via module PragTic:
```sh
$ ml PragTic
```
The module sets up environment variables and loads some other modules, required for running PragTic simulations. This particular command loads the default module, which is PragTic/0.1-GCC-5.3.0-2.25, and modules:
```console
GCCcore/5.3.0
binutils/2.25-GCCcore-5.3.0
GCC/5.3.0-2.25
MPICH/3.2-GCC-5.3.0-2.25.
```
## Running
Follow the next step to compute simulations sequentially:
```sh
pragtic DATABASE ANSET SET_OF_POINTS LOAD_REGIME METHOD RESULT_FILE
```
and this step to compute it in parallel:
```sh
mpirun -np NP pragtic DATABASE ANSET SET_OF_POINTS LOAD_REGIME METHOD RESULT_FILE
```
where
| Parameter | Description |
| --------------- | -------------------------------------------- |
| *NP* | number of processes |
| *DATABASE* | .fdb database specially prepared for PragTic |
| *ANSET* | analyse setup name |
| *SET_OF_POINTS* | set of points name |
| *LOAD_REGIME* | load regime name |
| *METHOD* | method name |
| *RESULT_FILE* | file where results will be saved |
## Results
After computation newly created result file *RESULT_FILE* in the current directory should contain results. More detailed result informations then should be found in the file *res.txt* which is in every single randomly named folder created by PragTic in the very same current directory.
