Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is the domain of numerical analysis and physics concerned with the accurate and efficient simulation of fluid motions using computer software.


A suite of open source solvers and tools for CFD, multiple versions of OpenFOAM are available as modules on Compute Canada clusters.


This is a commercial CFD program that is part of the Ansys package, available on Compute Canada clusters though the user is required to supply a license.


A non-commercial program for atmospheric fluid dynamics, WRF is available as a module on Compute Canada clusters.
