STAR-CD by Computational Dynamics, Limited. Homepage is www.cd.co.uk.
AMI has a web page at http://www.am-inc.com AMI was incorporated in 1971 to conduct research and development in aerodynamics and hydrodynamics for government and industry. Since then AMI has developed a series of robust CFD codes that can be applied to a wide range of practical problems. AMI also markets and provides technical support for some CFD codes written by others under cooperative agreements with the original authors. AMI headquarters is located in Redmond, WA. The Arlington, VA office specializes in hydrodynamic applications of CFD technology. AMI has marketing and support agreements with companies in Europe, Asia, and Australia. Some of the codes available from AMI include: -VSAERO: A full configuration, subsonic aeroynamics analysis method that solves the linearized potential flow equations. VSAERO uses piecewise constant singularity strengths on surface panels to represent arbitrary three-dimensional configurations. Boundary layer calculations can be performed along on-body streamlines and the resulting boundary layer thicknesses can be used to iteratively correct the inviscid flowfield (using surface transpiration). Compressibility corrections are available within the program for higher subsonic Mach number cases. Wake geometry is determined by an iterative wake shape calculation procedure. Special purpose modules such as; FSWAVE, ROTOR and PROPFAN expand VSAERO's capabilities. These modules calculate the nonlinear hydodynamic wave effects on surface piercing vessels, helicopter rotor/fuselage interactions and propeller/fan performance, respectively. -FSWAVE: A free-surface module developed for VSAERO which uses desingularized source panels raised above the free water surface combined with normal VSAERO (source and dipole) panels on the ship hull surface to predict the steady flow past submerged or floating vehicles. Provisions are made for predicting the change in the draft and trim of a ship resulting from its forward speed, to model the flow past a transom stern, to model the flow past a ship traveling in shallow water, and to model the flow past lifting surfaces near a free surface. The program satisfies the nonlinear boundary condition on the free water surface. This is done in an iterative manner, where during each iteration the linearized solution about the flow resulting from the previous iteration is computed using an approach similar to that originally developed by Dawson. The first iteration solves for the flow linearized about the free stream flow. -USAERO: This program calculates the transient aerodynamic characteristics of complex configurations in arbitrary motion. It is based on a time-stepping procedure which allows relative motions of configuration components. USAERO simulations include manuevering aircraft, gust response, rotor/body interactions and stores separation from aircraft. Special application modules FPI and FSP couple with USAERO to provide flight-path integration calculations with six degrees of freedom and ship motion calculations with nonlinear free-surface simulation. -MGAERO: A 3-D Euler method for computing flow about arbitrary configurations in the subsonic through supersonic flight regimes. It uses a multigrid approach with an equally-spaced Cartesian mesh structure including local refinement. Swept, unswept and rotated grids may be used to develop local computational domains which may be overlapped with either the surface or other multigrid levels. The ease of geometry and grid input allows for rapid turnaround of results for complete aircraft, including nacelles. -OMNI3D: A color graphics visualization program which displays simulation results in 3-D and arbitrary 2-D slices. It shows surface pressure, velocity and Mach number contours on the body and in the flow field, streamline and boundary-layer parameters along on- and off-body streamline trajectories and wake geometry data. Time steps and iterations may be animated or stepped through. OMNI3D's mouse-driven interface and fast graphics permit rapid assessment of results on complex configurations. -ICE: This code calculates particle trajectories in the vicinity of an arbitrary aircraft for use in icing and sand-ingestion analyses. The efficient trajectory calculation and prescribed velocity field result in a very fast calculation. ICE reads the aircraft geometry and flowfield velocity from an OMNI3D graphics file. -XFOIL: An interactive program for the design and analysis of subsonic airfoils. It consists of a collection of menu-driven routines which perform functions such as; viscous (or inviscid) analysis of an existing airfoil, airfoil design and redesign by interactive specification of a surface speed distribution, airfoil redesign by interactive specification of new geometric parameters. XFOIL is based upon a linear-vorticity stream function panel method, coupled to a two-equation, lagged dissapation integral boundary layer formulation. -MSES: A coupled viscous/inviscid Euler method for the analysis and design of multi-element (and single-element) airfoils. A streamline-based Euler discretization and a two-equation integral boundary layer formulation are coupled through the displacement thickness and solved simultaneously by a full Newton method. MSES is capable of multi-point optimization of single- and multi-element airfoils. The full Newton solution method of the solver permits effectively "free" calculation of the flowfield sensitivities to predefined element shape deformation modes and element translation and rotation modes. -MISES: A coupled viscous/inviscid Euler method for the analysis an design of cascades. The internal formulation of this code is much like that of MSES's. -CAMRAD II: An aeromechanical analysis of helicopters and rotorcraft that incorporates a combination of advanced technology, including multibody dynamics, nonlinear finite elements, structural dynamics and rotorcraft aerodynamics. For the design, testing and evaluation of rotors and rotorcraft, CAMRAD II calculates performance, loads, vibration, response and stability. -INCA: A compressible Navier-Stokes flow solver with turbulence and chemistry modelling options. An advanced solution procedure is used to solve the equations on multi-block, body-fitted, finite-volume computational grids. Subsonic, transonic, supersonic, and hypersonic viscous flows can be calculated for complex geometries.

AeroSoft currently markets and supports the state-of-the-art, computational fluid dynamics code, General Aerodynamic Simulation Program (GASP). GASP is well suited for a wide range of fluid dynamics applications, and in particular for military applications due to its extensive thermo-chemical library. GASP's thermo-chemical library allows users to model complex fluid dynamic phenomena including frozen, equilibrium, and finite-rate chemistry as well as non-equilibrium thermodynamics. The extensive variety of physical models incorporated into GASP provides a complete tool for modeling complex three-dimensional steady or time-dependent flows throughout the performance envelope. Because of the broad flexibility inherent in this software, and its wide acceptance and use by the defense industry, GASP is an ideal target for the scalable parallel computing environment.
AeroSoft's next generation of simulation tools is based on an unstructured finite-volume formulation. In the General Unstructured Software Toolkit (GUST) the majority of physical modeling capabilities currently distributed with GASP are also supported. Both the structured and unstructured packages share a common library of routines used to calculate such quantities as thermodynamic and transport properties, inviscid fluxes, and source terms for the finite-rate chemical reactions. GUST is capable of accurately simulating time-dependent problems whose domain can be described with a single grid and single connectivity array. The unstructured code is highly optimized for vectorization on Cray supercomputers and parallelization via decomposition on distributed memory multiprocessor architectures.

We (Combustion Dynamics) developed an Euler code using FCT 6th order in a rectilinear grid. Complex solid shapes can be defined in the calculation domain. We then detect all solid surfaces and use Reimann solvers across the boundary and impose free-slip conditions at the surface. The benefit being that the whole problem setup only requires several minutes... really :^) and you do not need complex grid generators. For a detonation model, we currently have one-step and two-step combustion models. For equilibrium or chemical kinetic modelling of shocks and detonations (i.e. ZND profile, CJ parameters, reflected shocks, etc.) you can let your big cheese (Geraint) know that a beta version of "SuperSTATE" will be heading his way shortly (depending on your definition of short :^) ).

Gridgen is a software system for the generation of structured grids for use in the computational sciences. The grids generated by Gridgen consist of body-conforming, quadrilateral and hexahedral cells. Gridgen is capable of building multi- or single-block grids, abutting or overlapping blocks, surface or volume grids, and 2D or 3D grids. Gridgen consists of two codes, Gridgen (interactive) and Gridgen3D (batch). Gridgen is a visually oriented and interactive code in which user control is maintained through menu button selection, mouse point-and-click, and occasional text input. On-line help may be accessed anywhere within the code, providing both specific and general information to facilitate code usage. A User's Manual is also available with sections covering the theory, how-to, and a tutorial. The Gridgen process begins with import of the geometry model about which the grid is to be generated. The geometry model may be imported in a variety of formats including IGES. Imported geometry may be supplemented by geometry created in Gridgen. Next, the user interactively creates the curve, surface, and volume grid components. Curves are constructed first as free space or model-constrained curves of various mathematical forms. Grid points are distributed along the curves using any of several clustering functions that allow for clustering anywhere along the curve's length. Surface grids are then initialized automatically after the user selects the curves that define the surface's perimeter. Surface grid point refinement may be achieved by applying a suite of techniques from Gridgen's broad algebraic and elliptic partial differential equation functionality. Volume grids are constructed in a similar manner, by interactively selecting the surface grids that comprise the block boundary. Volume grid points are initialized automatically and may be refined by accessing Gridgen3D, a 3D partial differential equation code run in batch mode. Interfaces to the TEAM, NPARC, OVERFLOW, CNSFV, DTNS, FANS, VSAERO, and INCA analysis codes are included in Gridgen. These interfaces allow users to set solver-specific boundary conditions on the surfaces of the blocks in the system. The final products of Gridgen, the grid and connection/boundary condition input decks, can then be exported in the exact form required by the flow solvers. Gridgen runs on all Silicon Graphics workstations including those with 8-bit graphics. Now 11 years old and 300+ users strong, Gridgen development and support today is maintained by its two original authors, John Steinbrenner and John Chawner, of Pointwise, Inc., Bedford, Texas.

Swansea NS codes
From Nick Lavery / N.P.Lavery@swansea.ac.uk
Date: Mon, 10 Jun 1996 17:49:22 +0100TURB are two FORTRAN codes (in 2-D and 3-D) which used k-l, k-epsilon and an ASM model of turbulence to solve the Reynolds Equations, coupled with a pseudo- transient time-stepping thermal equation solution. The solution uses the finite element method, and the codes are the result of over twenty years research by Professor Cedric Taylor at the Department of Civil Engineering here at Swansea. There is also an older code called LAM2D which solves the Navier-Stokes equations by the finite element method without any turbulence models. The sites at which they can be found are : http://www.swan.ac.uk/mecheng/staff/nlavery/code.html.

Technical Director : Dr. J-M. Marchal
Customer Support Manager : Mr. B. Hocq
Business Manager: Mr. Y. Rubin
Product Manager: Mr. T. MarchalThe Polyflow s.a. company - Polyflow S.A. is located in Louvain-la-Neuve in Belgium and has sales and technical support offices in the USA, Japan, Korea Taiwan, the Czech Republic and Israel. The company, founded in 1988, accelerates technology transfer through research and development of new software capabilities and cooperates with universities and research groups to remain at the forefront of technology in the area of flow modelization and advanced numerical methods. It provides industrial technical centers and research and development laboratories with the latest progresses in finite element simulation methods in a user-friendly environment. Polyflow is the leader in simulations of the processing of complex materials in industrial flows and is resolutely oriented towards the industrial applications and the design and understanding of processes where viscous flows play a major role under isothermal and non-isothermal conditions, such as flow of plastic, rubber, glass or food stuff. To date, POLYFLOW licenses have been acquired by more than 155 companies and academic centers throughout the world, distributed between Europe, North America and Asia (Japan and Korea mainly), where Polyflow has a leading position in the field of computer aided processing in the plastics and chemical industry. A group of Ph.D. and highly skilled engineers provide consulting and maintenance activities to all users and customers. They don't hesitate to travel and to visit customers in order to establish a relationship based on confidence and user satisfaction. Product names: The main product is the POLYFLOW package, which comprises its own mesh generators, parameters input module, the solver and graphical post-processor. Several modules are available for the solver such as the Viscoelastic or Blow Molding simulation capabilities and for interfaces with existing pre- and post-processors, such as Patran, I-Deas and more. Third-party products such as the Polycem CAD/mesh generator product and the CFView-PF graphical post-processor are also available with POLYFLOW. Platforms: The POLYFLOW package runs on most platforms, from Unix workstations (Silicon Graphics, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Sun, DEC), up to major supercomputers, such as Convex or Cray computers. Presentation of the company's activities and strategic vision The POLYFLOW product is international by nature and distributed worldwide to major plastics, rubber and resins producers, glass industries and plastics and rubber transformers in the fields of construction (e.g. window profiles), automotive industry and consumer goods (e.g. rubber profiles, gas tanks, seals, bottles with handles) and medical supplies (e.g. catheters), among others. The market for POLYFLOW is distributed almost evenly between Europe, where Polyflow S.A. markets its product, North America (through a distrbutor) and Asia (also through distrbutors, mainly in Japan, Korea and Taiwan), and new markets begin to emerge such as Australia and China. Among the typical customers of POLYFLOW thus far are companies like Daikin, Solvay, Glaverbel, Dow, General Electric, Allied-Signal, Owens-Corning =46iberglass, Sumitomo, Mitsubishi Chemical, the tire industry, to name a few. For its work in the numerical modelling of fluids in industrial flows to provide a tool for a better understanding of the physics of the process and the optimization of the geometry and operational conditions, Polyflow S.A. has been awarded in 1990 the Gold Prize for Technological Innovation granted by the Walloon Region. POLYFLOW is already sold in large industrial groups on the three main geographical areas, and the company plans to reinforce its activities in the field of consulting for smaller size companies who do not wish to maintain permanently a study group but would certainly benefit from the numerical simulation capabilities offered by POLYFLOW and its experienced team of engineers, without having to invest in the acquisition of the program or initial training in this technology. In this way, Polyflow S.A. will be able to make POLYFLOW simulation available to a larger number of companies and providing an answer to day-to-day industrial problems, especially in the extrusion and blow molding processes and for flows in the confined domains of extrusion equipment. The goal of the Polyflow company is also to solve industrial problems, participate in a larger acceptation of Computer Aided Processing in the industry and highlight the important savings for industries through the reduction of costly trial and error procedure; these savings may come from less manufacturing and testing of new dies, the reduction of idle time for the production line and wasted material, which is often not (easily, if at all) recyclable, another ecological aspect more widely accepted nowadays than ever before.
