by Tom Taylor

The SU2 website, which hosts the open source code developed by the Aerospace Design Lab (ADL) in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Stanford University, has received more than 15,000 visits in less than nine months. The USA, China and India are top of the list in terms of both visits and downloads.

Nine months after its first release, SU2, the open source code designed and developed by students, staff and faculty in the Aerospace Design Lab (ADL) at Stanford University, is fast on its way to becoming one of the key software tools used for aerospace simulation and design, with more than 15,000 visits and 2,000 free downloads from its website:

The USA, with 34.5%, is the country with the largest number of visits, followed by China and India, with 10.8% and 6.0%, respectively. The remaining 50% is divided between more than 100 countries and five continents.

The success of SU2 in the field of aerospace simulation and design lies not only in the fact that it is open-source, but also in that it is being developed in large part by university students.

The next release, v2.0, of the code is planned for January 8th, 2013. The new version is intended to be faster, more accurate and more stable, and will be available for Linux, Windows and Mac. It will also include important improvements that will make it applicable to a wider range of problems, from academic to industrial.
