In 1981 Professor Brian Spalding, the father of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), completed a project started in 1978 when he held the post of Reilly Professor of Combustion at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. At Purdue he did not have a coder as had been the case at Imperial College. He therefore taught himself how to carry out this process and produced the first versions of PHOENICS and CHAMPION.
The Spring Newsletter is now available
PHOENICS 2020 is available to all maintained customers.
New extensions have been added to the Volume-of-Fluid (VOF) method available in PHOENICS
PHOENICS is a reliable, cost-effective CFD program with a proven track record simulating scenarios involving fluid flow, heat or mass transfer, chemical reactions and combustion for a wide range of applications.
DC-Optima is CHAM’s datacentre specific CFD tool which will enable you to optimize the cooling and ventilation performance of your datacentre.
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.
Our specialised software, FLAIR-EFS, can help architects and building engineers understanding the impact of a new building by helping simulate flow in urban environments.
PHOENICS ESTER is a special-purpose adaptation of PHOENICS, developed to simulate multi-anode electrolytic smelters of the Hall-cell type.
FLAIR is a PHOENICS variant which provides an air-flow and thermal-simulation facility for the HVAC community, and for those concerned with fire, smoke and pollutant hazards, for internal and external flow scenarios.
