SimWorks Alternatives

    SimWorks is described as 'free CFD software built upon established open-source simulation tools integrated into an intuitive GUI. It supports the entire CFD simulation process: CAD import, pre-processing, meshing, running and fully integrated post-processing'. There are more than 10 alternatives to SimWorks for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Linux, Mac, Online / Web-based and GNU Octave. The best alternative is OpenFOAM, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like SimWorks are SimScale (Paid), COMSOL Multiphysics (Paid), KRATOS Multiphysics (Free, Open Source) and CFDTool (Freemium).
