CFDShip-Iowa is general-purpose computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation software developed at the University of Iowa’s IIHR—Hydroscience & Engineering. CFDShip-Iowa represents, in part, deliverables for sponsored research funding from the Office of Naval Research. The program solves the incompressible Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) and continuity equations with a variety of turbulence models, and a single-phase level set […]
