2DFlowPlus v2.5

DynaFlow has released a new version of its 2DFlowPlus package for visualising flows induced by the distributions of point and line singularities, such as vortices, dipoles and sources. It graphically illustrates the use of potential flow theory by the combination of a uniform flow with a variety of singularities to simulate a wide range of fluid mechanics problems.

Designed for professional and educational use, 2DFlowPlus v2.5 quickly produces graphic representations of many classical fluid dynamics problems helping comprehension. When used in conjunction with a fluid dynamics class, 2DFlowPlus can make visualisation of textbook theory as easy as clicking the mouse. It also allows the user to simulate and visualise complex flows making it a valuable tool for the professional.

2DFlowPlus uses a friendly graphical user interface with easy access to its commonly-used functions and features.
