News Since its introduction in January 2012, SU2, The Open-Source CFD Code, has been downloaded thousands of times by users and developers in academia, government, and industry, including many leading companies and universities.

As an open-source project, the growth of active user and developer communities is a crucial goal for SU2. Given the incredibly positive response, we are pleased to announce a new version of the code with major improvements and an entirely new package for educational purposes.

This release marks the third major version of the SU2 open-source code. SU2 is a collection of C++ software tools for performing Partial Differential Equation (PDE) analysis and for solving PDE-constrained optimization problems, with special emphasis on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and aerodynamic shape design.

Version 3.0 has a number of major additional capabilities:

  • Adjoint-based RANS shape optimization.
  • New unsteady analysis and design optimization capability.
  • Upgrades to the underlying parallelization and file I/O.
  • Significant improvements to the accuracy, performance, and robustness of the software suite.

Alongside Version 3.0 of SU2, we are introducing SU2 Educational (SU2_EDU): a new, educational version of the Euler/Navier-Stokes/RANS solver from the SU2 suite. The simplified structure of SU2_EDU makes it suitable for students and beginners in CFD. By focusing on a handful of key numerical methods and capabilities, SU2_EDU is ideal for use in CFD courses, for independent studies, or just to learn about a new field!

SU2_EDU is also geared toward anyone interested in high-fidelity airfoil analysis. The initial version of SU2_EDU is an intuitive, easy to use tool for computing the performance of airfoils in inviscid, laminar, or turbulent flow including non-linear effects in the transonic regime, that only requires the airfoil coordinates.

Finally, we would like to thank the open-source community for their interest, help, and support.
