We have some experience in using HyperMesh for building the CFD model and Fluent for processing. My company is now looking into buying the software for doing simple CFD analysis(less than 500,000 cells)to show parameters such as airflow, fire modelling, smoke spread, temperature,etc.

Besides HyperMesh and Fluent, we know there are some other cheaper softwares available and want to find out the estimated cost of buying the CFD software (in Singapore). We also wish to know the limitations and benefits of the software compared to HyperMesh&Fluent, and any specific requirements for the hardware.

(1). It is nice to see the requirement lists about the software you are looking for. (2). You may want to contact software vendors listed here as sponsors. Your question is really for them.
