In my opinion, the best deal is to use the PHOENICS-CHAM Sharewares (have a look on their web site) as they are free of charge and are of very good quality.

The codes are also validated!!! and yours???

Why pay for something when you can get it for free???

Anyway, are you supposed to be advertising. I thought this was a discussion group not an billboard for adverts.

Well, if you need specific applications or extented support, CHAM may charge you for the service. Fair enough but remember that you should check out PHOENICS Shareware - this is the most powerful CFD code available as shareware that I know. I never heard about ACRi but it would be difficult for me to try it as I would have to pay for it! If there are good reasons to try this package please let me know.

I'm not supporting ACRi people beause I don't know them. My question for you was to make things clear; once again is the PHOENIXCS sharware really free?? Please answer me. I'm not looking for special option or extended support just the free ($ 0) sharware. Thanks

Hello,

PHOENICS Shareware is available in 5 variants (or levels). These can be downloaded from the web or, perhaps more conveniently, by ordering a CD and its associated documentaion via CHAM's cfdShop (http://www.simuserve.com/cfd-shop/). Consequently, there is a small charge. Once received, however, the software is freely copy-able.

The thing to do therefore is to get your university to buy 1 copy and then distribute the same to interested students. PHOENICS Shareware contains not only the PHOENICS [1.5] software itself, and an early version of a GUI, but also many technical papers, tutorials, library cases and so forth which should be of interest to students across the range of engineering and environmental applications. The latest release [3.3] is also made available to academic institutions at preferential rates.

Please do contact me at me email address: pls@cham.co.uk for further information - or please use the PHOENICS forum for further discussions.

Shareware CFD software from any source can only be good news for education and so I congratulate ANY supplier for providing this service.

Yours,

Peter Spalding

Sorry if my answer was too brutal for the last reply, but the people I know got it for free (0, $0, Ecu0).

Could you please explain what the purpose of the "five levels" of PHEONICS shareware is? I find the whole concept strange, and the explanation of the levels at the web site seems confusing. My general conclusion, and perhaps I was very much mistaken, is that the free levels are primitive and almost useless, while the higher levels are useful but not free. I would be very interested in any sort of user feedback on the nature of and utility of the PHEONICS shareware. Is this really just a demo and marketing tool, or is it actually software one could use for real-world problems?

Hello,

The most up-to-date information about PHOENICS shareware is in cfdShop area at the adress <A HREF="http://www.simuserve.com/cfd-shop/shwrtop.htm">http://www.simuserve.com/cfd-shop/shwrtop.htm</a>
From the links provided therein the tecnical specifications of shareware products can be further accessed.
The examples illustrating the shareware applications can be found at:
The academic and practical examples of Shareware applications are published regularly in PHOENICS Journal of CFD along with the settings to enable the readers to reproduce the author's results.

I hope the inspection of the aboves will clarify what PHOENICS Shareware can do.

Regards

Sergei Zhubrin

(1). Thank you very much for the information. (2). It is really a nice place to visit, to visit various applications in level-1 through level-5. (3). It provide a clear picture of cfd applications. (4). I would strongly recommend the newcomers of cfd to visit these applications first, to get the overall view of cfd. (many vendors websites are including cfd application examples recently, It is a good idea to first visit these sample cases also)

I've checked out this "Phoenics five level" bit (sounds like a pyramid scheme doesn't it?). well the code isn't very useful, at least not the free ones and if I'm not mistaken the code is pressure based, and while i know that much of the CFD world uses pressure based codes (SIMPLE, PISO etc) for everything, but I'm not a fan of these schemes. give me a time iterative (coupled) scheme anyday. plus this student version of Answer costs $50 so if you want a (relatively) full featured code for your students it looks pretty good. I' rather get them free from http://capella.colorado.edu/~laney though ;-)
