Hi, while we wait to be granted permissions to download the fun3d software, I have a couple of questions
-how do we compile/run this software on my local computer? does this run on linux? should we use gfortran? what is the stack? -do you have some sample datasets or test cases that we can use to validate we have are running the software successfully? and some cases for which the software could do better?
@Hector Yuen From NASA's web page on Pleiades Supercomputer, an appropriate name. I remember learning about the Pleiades (stars) at the Settlemyre Planaterium as a kid. Not that you would need to use the same Linux distribution, etc. https://www.nas.nasa.gov/hecc/resources/pleiades.html

We were able to work with HeroX to draft challenge guidelines, promote the challenge to a targeted audience of interested parties, and ultimately draw a crowd of innovators from across the globe to submit proposals to address our challenge. We were quite satisfied with the number and diversity of both individuals and proposals that the challenge drew.
