Over 80 % of world energy supply is estimated to be provided by burning fossil fuels for the next tens of years (U. S. Department of Energy, 2011). The amount of available fossil fuels is limited. The net energy demands are linearly increasing. Alternative energy technologies are not matured enough. The accident of Fukushima nuclear power plant. Increasing CO2, NOx and SOx emissions. What can we do? More details...

Flowsquare is a 2D computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software for variety of flow phenomena. The aim is to provide a free, handy, integrated CFD environment to students and beginners. No complicated skill is required. Flowsquare is used in many schools, universities and companies for lecture, training and research.
