    Does anyone here have any experience with Computational Fluid Dynamics software? I am looking for either a cheap or shareware program that I can use to import 3-D cad models for airflow studies.

    There are a lot of $20,000 packages, but I don't have that. I found a lot of free airfoil analysis programs, but nothing good for complete 3-D models.

    If you find something let me know. I'll also keep my eyes open for something.

    A friend of mine just completed his Ph.D. in CFD, so I can ask him for you.

    Cool. Anything you can find out would be very helpful. The objects I need to test are all sub-sonic.
