offers academic institutions the opportunity to acquire an advanced
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software system at a fraction of the
current retail price*.
a fully integrated software system that allows a CFD researcher to harness
the power of an advanced 3D Navier-Stokes flow solver and mesh generation
system with minimal effort.
CFD2000 is currently being
utilized at universities around the world as a research tool to solve many
challenging and interesting fluids and heat transfer problems.
CFD2000: A Research Tool
STORM is a fast
and efficient 3-D finite-volume Navier-Stokes solver that has been
extensively validated against experimental data. By utilizing the integral
form of the governing equations, conservation is enforced exactly and the
PISO algorithm produces superior steady-state and transient solutions.
Physical Modeling Capabilities:
STORM can model
advanced chemistry, particle tracking, porous media, non-Newtonian fluids,
conjugate heat transfer, free surface, radiation, and moving body problems.
Geometric Modeling Capabilities:
CFD models can
be set up in Cartesian, cylindrical, and body-fitted coordinate (BFC)
systems. CAD and primitive import capabilities are also available.
CFD2000: A Teaching Tool
In addition to
the many advanced mesh generation and physical modeling capabilities,
CFD2000 offers unique features that make teaching and learning fast
CFD Model Library:
More than 100 CFD models are provided with the software,
ranging from traditional 2-D validation problems (flow around cylinder,
backward-facing step, thermally-driven cavity) to 3-D applications, such as
transient heart valve motion, hypersonic missile flow and atmospheric
More than 40
ready-to-use Fortran subroutines are provided with the software that give
access to all flow variables, most physical properties, and special moving
grid and boundary conditions.
