FEATFLOW Alternatives

    FEATFLOW is described as 'The program package FEATFLOW is both a user oriented as well as a general purpose subroutine system for the numerical solution of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations in two and three space dimensions' and is an app in the Education & Reference category. There are more than 10 alternatives to FEATFLOW for Windows, Linux, Mac and Online / Web-based. The best alternative is Elmer, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like FEATFLOW are OpenFOAM (Free, Open Source), SimScale (Paid), COMSOL Multiphysics (Paid) and CFDTool (Freemium).
