I'm a french student and now i have a cfd work about flow in pipelines to achieve. I would like to know if it is possible to find a demos version of fluent freely downloadable and if someone could indicate me the link. Thank you very much and sorry if my question is too simple.

Tomasz,

If you download emule from emule project you can search for a pirate version of fluent. This however is illegal so I'm not advising you to do this but know from colleagues that this is how to obtain a free version.

Yes it is copyright violation but lots of people who do very important research find it useful to be able to use fluent on their laptop.

Their funders pay fluent 2500 a year per license and some people then occasionally use their laptop when NOT using the actual license, hence it makes no real difference.

If they just need to use Fluent on their laptop it's very easy to have the department/company IT service setup a VPN so that you can connect to your license server from anywhere in the world. That's how most people I work with use Fluent away from their office.

We can use our own desk pc via internet remote control but I literally don't know anyone who has bothered except one guy who works away at some company.

We can also link our laptop into our Uni system and access the licenses but I know someone who went to get it set up and they wanted to go through his whole laptop with a fine toothcomb so he didn't bother.

If I use my laptop it's only to create a mesh which I do like using my laptop for even in my office.

That's how I use to connect to the company license server even if I am in Vietnam (secured connexion to the company servers)

So whats this VPN then cause that sounds like a good way to access a license without having to be security cleared into the network?

I'll speak to the guy who usually sorts out the IT stuff cause it's only on their licenses I can use the NOx model.

Mmmm. If you have a security problem (i.e. a problem with the security admin people ...) a VPN is not actually a brilliant solution. The VPN gets you into the network, so if you are a security risk you can still cause problems. A solution that works, but seldom seems to be used, is to set up port-mapping on the corporate network side, so you access the license server port at the firewall's IP address, which is mapped internally to the license port on the license server behind the firewall. It is only necessary to open the license server port numbers on the firewall, and then you can also still restrict access to a user from a known IP. This way the remote user does not get into the network, and can't cause any trouble.

You could try OpenFoam, which is true freeware
