I don't know where "CFX" came from.

But I do recall that code was originally named "flow3d" (no hyphen).

Flow Science, developers of "flow-3d" (trade-marked I think), objected. So CFX was selected.

That goes back to the early 1990's.

Punch "roman name for isle of wight" in to Google and you will understand what Vectis stands for.

Richard Johns now at CD-adapco had a good sense of humour when he came up with this one.

I guess it has to be the first time that something has been named after the isle of wight, apart from the odd chippy and a ferry!
