FluidBox is a software dedicated to the simulation of inert or reactive flows. It is also able to simulate multiphase, multi-material and MDH flows. There exist 2D and 3D dimensional versions. The 2D version is used to test new ideas that are later implemented in 3D. Two classes of schemes are available : A classical finite volume scheme and the more recent residual distribution schemes. Several low Mach number preconditioning are also implemented. The code has been parallelized with and without overlap of domains. Recently the linear solver PaStiX has been integrated in FluidBox. A partitioning tool exists in the package and uses Scotch. At present the software is only a private project but some parts of FluidBox are expected to be in the public domain by the end of the year.
