Overture is an object-oriented code framework for solving partial differential equations in serial and parallel computing environments. It provides a portable, flexible software development environment for applications that involve the simulation of physical processes in complex moving geometry . It is implemented as a collection of C++ libraries that enable the use of finite difference and finite volume methods at a level that hides the details of the associated data structures, as well as the details of the parallel implementation. Overture is designed for solving problems on a structured grid or a collection of structured grids. In particular, it can use curvilinear grids, adaptive mesh refinement, and the composite overlapping grid method to represent problems involving complex domains with moving components.

Applications: Many areas of computational fluid dynamics can use this technology; aerodynamics, oceanography, industrial fluid flows, combustion
