CFDRC & CFD++
 
Anybody would like to comment on CFDRC & CFD++ compared with the big three (Fluent, Star-CD & CFX) ?

CFD-ACE+ from CFDRC provides excellent capabilities for multi-physics simulation that the other packages do not contain. As such, CFD-ACE+ maximizes user efficiency for performing simulation that require coupled physics in order to get meaningful results. Some examples are: plasma reactor, fuel cell, lab-on-a-chip system simulations. These types of devices require simulation of not just flow and heat transfer, but electro-physics, ion transport, surface chemistry, bio-chemistry (and other) physics.

CFD-ACE+ has many physical models built-in so that extensive (and time consuming) wrtiting of user subroutines is not required.

That's one side of the story... the flowsolver of CFX (that uses segeregated algorithm) is probably un-beatable. I have experimented with this. Each software has it's own weakness & strengths...u gotta choose depending on ur needs.
