Software Technology at the CAVS SimCenter
Loci framework for intra-application coordination of fine-grained numerical kernels and methods.
CHEM code (built with Loci)
with finite-rate chemistry is used by NASA and DoD for Shuttle, launch vehicle,
propulsion, and missile systems analysis.
U2NCLE unstructured CFD code is used by DoD and US
industry for ship, submarine, propulsor, rotorcraft, fixed-wing aircraft, and
missile systems analysis.
SolidMesh unstructured AFLR mesh generation and geometry system for CFD
AFLR unstructured planar, surface and volume mesh generation software.
AFLR libraries are implemented directly within research, commercial and
proprietary systems; SolidMesh, HyperMesh, CREATE-MG, and Boeing-MADCAP.
GUMB-B and GUMBO multiblock, multigrid structured grid generation and
geometry system for CFD applications.
Simcenter Software Forum
The SimCenter Software Forum provides users of SimCenter 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. The information required to request download access is listed below. It is recommended that only a single user per site request download permissions to avoid installation problems.
SimCenter software is available under a Research License.
Availability is determined on a case by case basis and may be requested
on the SimCenter Software Forum
registration page. The request
should include a short description of the research
project, grid generation requirements, and who you work for and/or with
on the subject research. Research Licenses with download access are only
provided to permanent employees of a given institution.
Post Doctoral Researchers and Students should have their Faculty Advisor
or Supervisor register and request the Research License with download access.
Commercial companies may request access for government contract work on a
sepcific government project if they
have a representative of the respective government agency request access for
them via email to
David L. Marcum.
Research Licenses for non-government work are typically not provided
to commercial companies except for short-term evaluation or if they are
part of a collaborative research effort or research grant/contract with MSU.
Inquiries related to Commercial Licenses should be directed to
David L. Marcum.
SimCenter software is not
distributed outside the United States under a Research License as it is
restricted by export regulations and laws.
Older Software Technology (no longer supported)
UNCLE CFD code is available through ONR for ship,
submarine, and propulsor analysis.
MSU_TURBO CFD code (an UNCLE derivative) is used by NASA and US industry
as a standard code for jet engine analysis.
