News Fluent Inc., the world leader in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software solutions, has announced the release of Icepro 4.1, the latest version of its model clean up and import tool for electronics cooling analysis. Icepro 4.1 makes it easy to convert any CAD model into an efficient thermal model. Typically, CAD models are too detailed to be thermal modeling-friendly, so a conversion step is necessary and often tedious. Icepro 4.1 uses an intelligent and automated process to clean up CAD files and quickly make them suitable for thermal analysis in Fluent's Icepak(R) electronics cooling software.

Did Immature CFD Technology Kill NASP?

Application In Why Technology Projects Fail, The Space Review lists the NASP program's reliance on immature CFD technology as a reason for its failure.
At the time the NASP was started, the state of the art in computational fluid dynamics was just not far enough along. Modeling the entire flight regime to orbit both aerodynamically and thermally with the fidelity needed would have strained the high-performance computing capacity available at the time.

Is this accurate? Would this be the case if the project were started today?
