FluidBox is a software dedicated to the simulation of inert or reactive flows. It is also able to simulate multiphase, multimaterial and MHD flows. There exist 2D and 3D dimensional versions. The 2D version is used to test new ideas that are later implemented in the 3D one. Two classes of schemes have been implemented: classical finite volume schemes and the more recent residual distribution schemes. Several low Mach preconditioning techniques are also implemented. The code has been parallelized with and without overlap of the domains. Recently, the PaStiX solver has been integrated in FluidBox . A partitioning tool exists in the package, which uses Scotch .
FluidBox has also benefited from many software and functionality improvements from Rémi Butel (IMB); up to now, it is only a private project, but we expect to open some part of the code to public before the end of the year. In order to facilitate the project development, FluidBox has been uploaded to the INRIA/Gforge page.
