The solver has been applied to a number of complex large-scale problems by groups at NASA Langley, industry, and academia. (See the Applications section of this manual.) Internally, the software has been used to study airframe noise, space transportation vehicles, flow control devices using synthetic jets, the design of wind tunnel and flight experiments, and so forth. Boeing, Lockheed, Cessna, New Piper, and others have used the tools for applications such as high-lift, cruise performance, and studies of revolutionary concepts. The software has also been used for military applications, large-scale computer science research at national labs, as well as algorithmic studies performed at universities around the country. For example, researchers at Georgia Tech have been using FUN3D as their base for rotorcraft work.
