General purpose FEA for high school students?
 
Hi all,

New to the forum. I will be introducing a new engineering course in the fall for HS students. I would like to get a license of a FEA app that will allow us to do both structural analysis and CFD. Is there an app that is more recommended? Here are criteria:

1. Import parasolid or solidworks models
2. CFD
3. Structural/mechanical analysis
4. More user-friendly to beginners, HS-aged students
5. Educational license/price
6. Stand-alone application (a robotics course will be using solidworks, but not certain if it will do what we need and only 1-year license)

Thank you all!
