FEST-3D: Finite-volume Explicit STructured 3-Dimensional solver

Jatinder Pal Singh Sandhu; Anant Girdhar; Rakesh Ramakrishnan; R D Teja; Santanu Ghosh

FEST-3D is a modular CFD solver written in FORTRAN 90, developed with a motivation to help solve problems of academic and engineering interest. This software is designed to solve the compressible Favre-averaged Navier-Stokes equations using the finite-volume method on block-structured grids using MPI-based parallelization. The modularity of the code makes it easy to implement a new method for flux reconstruction, or a turbulence model. It provides a large number of options for higher-order spatial and temporal discretization, along with the latest turbulence and transition models, which are not all available in other open-source CFD software.
