Azore® is a CFD software tool that utilizes the control volume method for discretization of the mesh topology.  Traditional mesh topologies, as well as arbitrary polyhedral mesh topologies, are acceptable inputs to the Azore solver.

Azore is a cross platform application offering a distribution for Windows® , MacOS® , and Linux®.

A graphical user interface (GUI) is provided for preparation of simulation input and post processing of simulation results.

Azore is fully parallel for HPC use. Scalability is excellent.
