The automotive & aerospace industry have the resources to make actual mockups & test them in wind tunnels. Smaller & Medium sized business don't have that kind of money. If the goal with Open Source is to help come with an affordable alternative, in this case, through BOINC & GPUGRID.net what about offering people of lesser financial means, methods of running virtual simulations of different models & how they will do in a virtual wind tunnel.

That this might help not only small business' but the overall public, now having more & better products to choose from.

If Weather Patterns can be predicted through BOINC, Medical Research done, & even Animations. What about Aerodynamics, crash tests, & other simulation of real world factors effecting different designs & form factors?

Looks like this idea might be useful if GPUGRID had the financial means to hire at least one more programmer to write the programs needed.

The software for this may be available now, but not from GPUGRID. See here:
