Ansys Fluent:     /appl/soft/eng/ansys_inc/example_batch_job_files/parjob_puhti_fluent

Ansys Structural: /appl/soft/eng/ansys_inc/example_batch_job_files/parjob_puhti_struct

Copy those files and modify them for your own use. Further instructions are given in the files.

Ansys Fluent input files for the example batch job are in the folder:

/appl/soft/eng/ansys_inc/example_case_files/aircraft_wing/
