FEATool Multiphysics VirtualBox VM Available
FEATool Multiphysics is now available as a VirtualBox Virtual Machine (VM) disk image to quickly get up and running and for easy installation on systems that...
The open source FeatFlow CFD solver has been thoroughly tested, validated, and used in computational fluid dynamics benchmarks and in a wide variety of industrial fluid flow simulations such as heat exchangers, two-phase flows, screw and fixed industrial mixers, and more. Employing a novel and unique FEM multigrid solver approach FeatFlow has consistently shown to be both faster and more accurate compared to both modern academic and commercial CFD codes , . With the new FEATool integration the high performance FeatFlow CFD solver now can be used by everyone.
In addition grid smoothing and refinement functionality has been expanded and improved, as well as allowing conversion between simplex (triangle and tetrahedral) and structured (quadrilateral and hexahedral) grid cells.
New examples including three axisymmetric stress-strain models, two non-linear PDE models, and one new 2D Laplace equation test model
GUI fixes for Octave 4.2.x, bug fixes and stability improvements
