cuIBM code for Navier-Stokes equations

Vorticity field of the flow around a flapping elliptical airfoil, computed with cuIBM.

Vorticity field of the flow around a flapping elliptical airfoil, computed with cuIBM.

The cuIBM code solves the Navier-Stokes equations in two dimensions using an immersed boundary method. It was released on July 2012, to coincide with the first conference presentation of research using it.

Computations with cuIBM take advantage of GPU hardware using Cuda C. The code is fully validated using both analytical solutions and published experimental and numerical data. See the validation report for details.

The code is open source, under the MIT license.
