Capability: CFX-TASCflow computational fluid dynamics software features a fully implicit coupled solver. Version 2.10 provides improvements to turbo-machinery preprocessing compared with earlier versions. The software also features a unified environment to allow multiple component problem setup. A variety of newly added turbulence models permits users to chose the best model for a specific application for increased accuracy A new moving grid capability allows fluid and mechanical interaction analysis. Transient results can be viewed as animations to provide users with better interpretations of pressure, temperature, velocity, and other changes over time than were previously available.

Hardware: Unix or Windows NT operating system.
