    FeatFlow (Finite Element Analysis Toolbox for Flow) is a finite element CFD Fortran code using a very efficient FEM discretization together with a geometric multigrid approach for solving linear systems. This results in a very fast and computationally efficient solver, typically yielding a magnitude or more of speedup compared commercially available solvers. FeatFlow can be used from MATLAB with the FEATool Multiphysics GUI interface.

  • Code_Aster for Windows

    Code_Aster is a free software for numerical simulation in structural mechanics, developed mainly by the “Advanced Mechanical Analysis” department of EDF‘s research and development department (ERMES, ElectRo – MEchanics Studies). Since Code_Aster is provided for Linux environment only, we chose to rebuild it from sources to share its Windows binaries as many users were asking on the forum.

  • Calculix

    Calculix is a free and open-source finite-element analysis application that uses an input format similar to Abaqus. It has an implicit and explicit solver written by Guido Dhondt and a pre- and post-processor written by Klaus Wittig. The original software was written for the Linux operating system. Convergent Mechanical has ported the application to the Windows operating system. More at Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calculix

  • SU2

    Open-source collection of software tools for performing Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis and design. Computational analysis tools have revolutionized the way we design aerospace systems, but most established codes are proprietary, unavailable, or prohibitively expensive for many users. The SU2 team is changing this, making computational analysis and design freely available as open-source software and involving everyone in its creation and development.
