CFDStudio/ANSWER v5.5 is the new release of the
well-established ANSWER CFD Software Tool developed by ACRi. The general
purpose Navier-Stokes solver, ANSWER, now comes bundled with CFDStudio, the
integrated development environment for CFD applications. Among the many new
# Gridless Computing (2D only; 3D under development),
# Dynamic english-language programming for
user-specified physics (without FORTRAN or C Programming),
# Multi-physics capability,
# Versatile library of functions for field variables,
fluid properties, sources, and initial and boundary conditions,
# Hybrid elements such as hexahedra, prisms, pyramids,
tetrahedra, triangles and quads. Any combination of elements are acceptable.
# Adaptive Gridding / Auto Refinement at runtime based
on flexible user-specified runtime criteria.
# If-then-else type of conditional statements.
# Expanded and improved library of matrix solvers,
# Computational improvements and enhancements for
efficiency and versatility of application.
--- CFDStudio is the new Integrated Development
Environment (IDE) developed by ACRi, for use in CFD problem setup, runtime and
In technical terms, CFDStudio is a "wysiwyg" (what you
see is what you get) type of development environment for CFD applications.
That is, as you are setting up a CFD problem, there is never a blind spot, you
can always visualize what type of boundary condition you are specifying, and
to what region. Any specification that you have provided can be viewed at a
The entire development environment is built on a
"point-and-click" approach, minimizing the guess work. The problem setup
(specification of geometry, initial and boundary conditions, sources, sinks,
fluid properties, solution and output options etc.), initiation and graphical
representation of CFD solution, as well as the postprocessing of the results
(including contours, vectors, slices, etc) are all done in the CFDStudio
environment, eliminating the need for 3rd party software, and flattening the
learning curve even for the most novice CFD software user.
