The Democratization of CFD

“Democratization” is a buzzword that has been circulating around the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) community for some time. In this White Paper, Keith Hanna and Ivo Weinhold of Mentor Graphics define the issue, establish the facts, look at the pros and cons of various technology solutions being offered in the market today, and then suggest some pointers for the future as the CFD industry tries to bridge the gap from R&D usage to mass market engineering simulation software.
