Origins of Commercial CFD

Posted March 23, 2009 at 08:25 by gocarts

Some may remember the 1980s for its over-the-top fashion (think big shoulder pads), even bigger hair styles, action movies (who can forget The Terminator?) and the Gordon Gekko greed is good mantra - some things never change! Others will remember the introduction of personal computers - a "dent in the universe" to quote Steve Jobs of Apple.

A few may even remember that the origins of the commercial CFD software industry can be traced to a small number of pioneers in the 1980s, including:
  • CHAM
  • creare.x (Fluent)
  • FDI
  • CD
  • AEA
  • Flow Science
  • Flomerics
  • Compuflo
  • ASC
If you are one of the few then maybe you'll find the origins of commercial CFD will stir a few fond memories.
