    Fluent is a pretty common piece of software, using finite element techniques to model fluid flow.

    Fluent employs Finite Volumes, not Finite Elements.

    Anyway, Brewnog is right at mentioning Fluent. Also, aerodynamicists are prone to develop their proper codes in Fortran or so. The fact you have a code made by you gives you some prestige... :smile:
