CFDRC Software

CFDRC (Computational Fluid Dynamics Research Corporation) software offers customers a complete solution which integrates Geometry/Grid Generation, choice of Analysis Codes and Graphics Postprocessing software. It basically includes three major components:

  • CFD-ACE+ -- a multiphysics simulation package including a geometry/grid generator, visualization tools, a tightly coupled numerical solver, scripting abilities, and import/export data format features. CFD-ACE+ includes fluid dynamics, heat transfer, and FEM solvers and strong Plasma/Chemistry capabilities.
  • CFD-FASTRAN -- a Density Based, Finite-Volume code, for high-speed flow solutions. It employs all major gridding techniques, including automated Chimera for multiple and moving body applications. It also has a coupled 6-DOF and prescribed motion models.
  • MDICE (Multi-Disciplinary Computing Environment) -- provides a system in which several engineering analysis programs run concurrently, to perform a Multi-Disciplinary analysis.

Current Version:   CFD-ACE+ 6, CFD-FASTRAN 4.0, MDICE 3.0
