The SimSys Software Forum provides users of CAVS CFD SimSys software a means to ask questions, submit enhancement requests, and report any bugs they find in the software. Any and all users are encouraged to register. Certain users may also be granted permission to download the software from the forum. The information required to request download access is described below.
Access to SimSys software is determined on a case-by-case basis and may be requested during registration or by modifying your profile after you have registered. The request should include a short description of the research project, requirements, and who you work for and/or with on the subject research. It is recommended that only a single user per site request download permissions to avoid installation problems. Download access is only provided to permanent employees of a given institution. Post Doctoral Researchers and Students must have their Faculty Advisor or Supervisor register and request download access. Commercial companies requesting access for Government Use work must separately have a representative of the respective government agency request access for them via email to the appropriate contact. We use that information primarily to document our assistance to various government efforts. Inquiries related to SolidMesh or AFLR should be directed to David L. Marcum. Inquiries related to Loci or CHEM should be directed to Edward A. Luke. SimSys software is subject to various Licenses, including Open, Research, Government Use, and Restricted Licenses. Access for non-government work for commercial companies typically requires that they are part of a collaborative research effort or research grant/contract with CAVS CFD Research. We are generally unable to distribute our software outside of the USA due to export restrictions.
