Where to find comparisons of CFD FEM codes
 
Hi, All. There are so many CFD FEM comercial codes in the market. I need some advice of picking up a package for running Incompressible Turbulent Flows inside an eclosure. So far we have a budget of more than $80,000 annual license fee to lease or buy a software. We like to make sure it does the right jobs. Thanks!

If that amount of budget is to be spent on software, vendors are willing to solve your sample problem by their engineer. However, do not be surprised by the different results from each vendors. So, if you do not have experimental data, it's going to be very difficult to make a right choice.

I found out most CFD FEM packages are not commercial package. By the way, so far I prefer GUSTCC or PowerFlow. What do you think? Thank you our talented friends.
