Brian Spalding worked on PHOENICS (Parabolic, Hyperbolic Or Elliptic Numerical Integration Code Series) with his colleagues at CHAM until, in the Autumn of 1981 he decided it was ready for release. In October of that year PHOENICS became the first CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) Software to be offered for commercial use. It has been used in commerce, research, and academe, since then. It is now, we believe, the only commercial code still supplied by its originators. This October, PHOENICS is 40.
FLAIR is a PHOENICS variant which simulates air-flow and thermal aspects of internal & external flow scenarios. It is a crucial tool for HVAC communities & those concerned with fire, smoke & pollutant hazards. FLAIR-EFS, which is particularly cost effective, can help architects & building engineers understand the impact of new buildings by simulating flow in urban environments.
RhinoCFD adds the power of CFD to the CAD environment, allowing Rhino3D users to undertake interactive investigations of CAD models under various flow conditions without leaving the Rhinoceros environment.

PHOENICs has been a valuable tool for me throughout my career. It has helped to optimize metal furnace burner arrangement, design and optimize industrial shop ventilation, design and optimize fume capture hoods, and understand and improve ductwork mixing.
