Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is the domain of numerical analysis and physics concerned with the accurate and efficient simulation of fluid motions using computer software.

OpenFOAM

A suite of open source solvers and tools for CFD, multiple versions of OpenFOAM are available as modules on Compute Canada clusters.

Fluent

This is a commercial CFD program that is part of the ANSYS package, available on Compute Canada clusters though the user is required to supply a license.
