Flow3D v11.0

The Flow3d software tool is used for computational fluid dynamics.

Accessing the software

To load the module:

$ module load apps/flow3d/v11.0

An example command to include in your job script:

runall -i ${INPUTDECK}

where INPUTDECK is a variable you can define in your job script that defines the name of your input deck to pass in to Flow3D.
