Introduction

The ADF (Amsterdam Density Functional) Modeling Suite offers powerful computational chemistry tools for many research areas such as homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, inorganic chemistry, heavy element chemistry, various types of spectroscopy, and biochemistry.

Compute Canada users have access to these programs:

  • ADF, to do first-principles electronic structure calculations;
  • BAND, to study periodic systems (solids, surfaces, slabs, and polymers) and reactions on surfaces.


Running ADF on Graham

ADF and BAND are installed only on Graham due to license restrictions; versions 2016.106 and 2017.207 are currently available. To load a module, use the module load command specifying the version you select, for example

 [name@server $] module load adf/2017.207

Job Submission

Graham uses the Slurm scheduler; for details about submitting jobs, see Running jobs.

Single ADF or BAND run

This mysub.sh script is for a whole-node job. The last two lines load version 2017.207 and call ADF directly.

File : mysub.sh

#!/bin/bash
#SBATCH --nodes=1 --ntasks-per-node=32  # 1 node with 32 cpus, you can modify it
#SBATCH --mem=0                         # request all memory on node
#SBATCH --time=00-03:00                 # time (DD-HH:MM)

module load adf/2017.207
ADF adf_test.inp


This is the input file used in the script:

File : adf_test.inp

Multiple ADF or BAND runs within one input file

Multiple calculations can be combined into a single job by creating a script such as this:

File : GO_H2O.run

#!/bin/bash
if test -z "$SCM_TESTOUTPUT" ; then SCM_TESTOUTPUT=GO_H2O.out; fi

$ADFBIN/adf << eor > $SCM_TESTOUTPUT

The following script is identical to the one used for a single run (mysub.sh), except that the last line calls the GO_H2O.run script, instead of ADF.

File : GO_H2O.sh

#!/bin/bash
#SBATCH --nodes=1 --ntasks-per-node=32  # 1 node with 32 cpus, you can modify it
#SBATCH --mem=0                         # request all memory on node
#SBATCH --time=00-03:00                 # time (DD-HH:MM)

module load adf/2017.207
./GO_H2O.run                            # run the shell script


Examples

Example input/output for ADF can be found on Graham under
