3D Virtual Wind Tunnel

    The 3D Virtual Wind Tunnel imports stereolithography (STL) files, a standard CAD format based on surface triangulation. It runs a boundary layer modeled, viscous, compressible flow solver for high Reynolds number flow with turbulent wakes.

    The simulation shown below ran on an HP Pavilion Elite (h8-1360t) in five hours using either quad-core CPU or CUDA core GPU. The Cartesian mesh consisted of 31 million fluid and solid cells, equally divided into near field and far field of the flow.

    The 3D Virtual Wind Tunnel installs on Microsoft Windows Vista / 7 / 8 and requires 6 GB of system RAM and an HD display (1920x1080). Please watch the video tutorial, which will demonstrate its ease of use. The software has a 7-day free trial period.
