Answers for Application for FUN3D software

Will this software be used for Government Contract, Grant, Cooperative Agreement, or Space Act Agreement? - Should this be "yes" or "no"? and what are the details if "yes"?

Just want to make sure I'm filling this out properly.

Your request for the software as part of this competition is not part of a Government Contract, Grant, Cooperative Agreement or Space Act Agreement, so you should answer no to this question.

Thanks, @Paul Musille! That's what I thought, but wanted to make sure everything was accurate!

@Paul Musille - another question: would it be useful to request
the high-energy gas libraries, or are those not considered in this competition?

The FUN3D software should be all that is needed.

Sorry for previous messages-

Question: how long is the typical wait time for approval?

It will most likely be weeks. Once you get approved they send you your code in the mail, yes the physical mail (we are dealing with the government). Once you have the code from the mail you'll be good to start digging around.

Does anyone have a copy of the code yet?

Got my rejection letter today. That was super fast for software.nasa! Any tips for not getting rejected for not being a business?

But...they told us to submit it as an individual, and not as a company....

"Use only personal non-affiliated emails like Gmail or Yahoo. Company or .edu emails should not be used since you are competing as an individual and they imply affiliation."

You'll only need the base FUN3D software for both this and the Topcoder challenges. The Gas Path version won't be needed for the scope described here. As long as you also applied for the normal FUN3D version you should still be in that approval queue.

Awesome. Sounds like user error on my part! I will give it another try.

You can either work with a another person and submit a single entry under one of your names, or you may create a team on HeroX and submit that way. (Look for the create a team dialog next near the big orange "Begin Entry" button.

I'm still waiting for a reply from my corrected application. No luck so far.

See the most recent update for clarifications: https://herox.com/HPFCC/update/1434

The new software package NASA is preparing for a late June release will be available for download directly from https://software.nasa.gov/ without a formal application process. This software package will remove the need for the full FUN3D package.
