VirtualFluids (VF) is a research code developed at the Institute for Computational Modeling in Civil Engineering (iRMB) at the Technical University Braunschweig. The code is a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) solver based on the Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM) for turbulent and multicomponent flow problems. It includes distributed pre- and postprocessing capabilities for simulations with more than 100 billion degrees of freedom.


You can find more information about the code in the Documentation pages. The pages contain information about the installation, usage and development of VirtualFluids.
