I wouldn’t want people to get the idea that I was advertising proprietary software on this blog with the previous post. So in an effort to redeem myself here are a few very, very interesting links:-
OpenFOAM – this a fully 3D solver system that does fluid mechanics – over the summer I will see if we can get it to run the Durham Cascade simulation.
Salome – this is fascinating development that now appears to be fully free software. It used to have a note forbidding commerical exploitation. It appears to be a very general framework for solving engineering problems.
CAE Linux – if you don’t want to go the trouble of actually installing either of those, there is a Live DVD available for download with most things preconfigured. I’ll let you know how I get on…
