up till now , almost NO best CFD software was born since it is 'export ' level and so the most important is to get a best CFD user .

(1). The best CFD software should at least produce the best solution. (2). The best solution should be reliable, accurate, and repeatable. This is the general requirement.

It's really a good question. Which program is the best depends on the CFD problem you want to look at. There is a number of good CFD programs available. They perform more or less efficiently depending on the case. Just go to their vendors, give them a benchmark project and see what comes out of the program. To me, a general question "which CFD software is the best" does not make much sense. regards DML

(1). You are right. There is a deep trouble about the image of CFD. (2).Something is definitely missing. (3). If there exists a best CFD software, then there must be a best CFD engineer behind it. (4). If a user is not interested in the best CFD engineer, I guess, he is not going to get the best CFD software.(5). It is a story similar to a golden goose. (6). The only thing people have in mond is the golden egg. Without the golden goose, the golden egg is nothing but a museum item.

One thing to look into is how user friendly the package is, Though if money is no object you will get a lot more advice and help than people like me in an academic institution.

with the packages i've heard about and used they're split into 3 sections

1-to build the geometry, 2-to model and specify conditions in a command file, 3-shows you what happens when you put 1 + 2 together.

The main problam I've had is that writing the command file is very complicated and the example in the book aren't always helpful.

I don't know if this is any help
