Icon Releases ICON FOAMpro 2.0 – A Comprehensive Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) supported process for industry based on open source solver technology

Windsor, United Kingdom, May 26th 2011

A number of sectors within industry have already recognised the benefits to business of harnessing the power of open source CFD solving and understand both the commercial and technical advantages of using computer resources effectively, through a parallelized process, which includes meshing, solving and post-processing.

Often the limiting factor in the uptake of open source technologies is the lack of expert technical support for the whole modelling process – Icon offers this comprehensive support via their annual subscription service: ICON FOAMpro 2.0.
