The simulation are based on in-house codes (using finite-volume method) and commercial codes (STAR-CCM+ and ANSYS), and mathematical modeling software tool (MatLab). CAD software Pro-Engineer (ProE) and STAR-Design are used for solid modeling. The high performance computing needs are served by the existing computing infrastructure at UB. The School of Engineering at UB has six computer laboratories, which house 135 high performance PCs/HP workstations and 25 Sun Microsystems stations. In addition, two 64-bit high performance HP workstations were acquired for the CFD lab through a UB Seed Money Grant.
