Alya is a high performance computational mechanics code to solve complex coupled multi-physics / multi-scale / multi-domain problems, which are mostly coming from the engineering realm. Among the different physics solved by Alya we can mention: incompressible/compressible flows, non-linear solid mechanics, chemistry, particle transport, multiphase problems, heat transfer, turbulence modeling, electrical propagation, etc. Alya is one of the two CFD codes of the Unified European Applications Benchmark Suite (UEBAS) as well as the Accelerator benchmark suite of PRACE.

AVBP is a compressible fine element Navier Stokes solver dedicated to reactive flows. Using the cell-vertex approach, it is capable of solving complex gaseous and two phase-flow problems covering academic and industrial applications. AVBP is at the state of the art of high performance computing and computational fluid dynamics modelling.

CODA is a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software for the solution of the RANS equations on unstructured grids based on second-order finite-volume and higher-order Discontinuous-Galerkin (DG) discretizations. The implementation addresses the efficient utilization of current and upcoming high performance computing clusters. CODA is being co-developed by Airbus, ONERA (the French Aerospace Lab), and the German Aerospace Center (DLR), offering the possibility of contributions from further partners on the basis of individual agreements.

Elmer is a finite element software for multiphysical problems published under open source. Elmer is mainly but not exclusively developed by CSC – IT Center for Science. The purpose of this site is to host services for the benefit of the user community.

FLEW is a finite-difference code designed for high-fidelity solution of compressible turbulent flows using single-block, structured, curvilinear meshes. The solver incorporates state-of-the-art numerical algorithms to cope with high-speed flows and turbulence, which rely on nonlinearly stable central discretization, and resorting to artificial viscosity in shocked regions only.

m-AIA (multi-physics AIA) is a multi-physics partial differential equation (PDE) solver framework with a focus on problems related to computational fluid dynamics, computational aeroacoustics and structural mechanics. It is developed at the Chair of Fluid Mechanics and Institute of Aerodynamics (AIA) at RWTH Aachen University in Germany.

Neko is a portable framework for high-order spectral element flow simulations. Written in modern Fortran, Neko adopts an object-oriented approach, allowing multi-tier abstractions of the solver stack and facilitating various hardware backends ranging from general-purpose processors, CUDA and HIP enabled accelerators to SX-Aurora vector processors.

OpenFOAM is the free, open source CFD software developed primarily by OpenCFD Ltd since 2004. It has a large user base across most areas of engineering and science, from both commercial and academic organisations. OpenFOAM has an extensive range of features to solve anything from complex fluid flows involving chemical reactions, turbulence and heat transfer, to acoustics, solid mechanics and electromagnetics
