UCNS3D is fundamentally a research platform, it enables Research & Development in the field of Computational Fluid Dynamics, from spatial and temporal discretisation schemes to Riemann solvers and turbulence models. The current state of UCSN3D is attributed to extensive collaborative research and funded projects.
