Yes, but due to the nature of simulations and the way that most applications calculate them, the simulations can only be "delegated" to a single machine on the farm, and not distributed amongst multiple workers.

We have a realflow job submission UI available in the Qube GUI that builds and submits a job which runs the realflownode.exe against a scene.

While this doesn't let you take advantage of your whole farm, it does offload the processing to a single worker in your farm.

through some rather nice perl coding, i can distribute a mpi calculation among multiple workers, but not have the queue automatically pick the workers.

i just never spent the time (low priority) to create my own backend for this automatic selection and after looking at the recent 3dsmax jobtype, there is a nice command to enable satellite slave nodes and the ability to get the nodes selected passed to the master.
