Computational Wind Engineering Tool

First of all, thank you to all users for trying out this CWE CFD tool. We appreciate the value of the time of our users and will welcome all your feedback.

The CWE Tool, developed by SimCenter, allows users to perform industry-grade CFD simulation, using OpenFOAM and Gmsh, on the powerful computers at the Texas Advanced Computing Center, through the Agave interface maintianed by DesignSafe.

You can suggest changes and post bugs by submitting issues to our code repository

Please note: this software is under continual development. We welcome any feedback and appreciate the patience of our testing users.
