Flow Analysis Software Toolkit

The Flow Analysis Software Toolkit, FAST, is a software environment for visualizing data. FAST is a collection of separate programs (modules) that run simultaneously and allow the user to examine the results of numerical and experimental simulations. The user can load data files, perform calculations on the data, visualize the results of these calculations, construct scenes of 3D graphical objects, and plot, animate and record the scenes.


Prizewinner!
FAST won NASA's 1995 Software of the Year Award!
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) visualization is the primary intended use of FAST, but FAST can also assist in the analysis of other types of data. FAST combines the capabilities of such programs as PLOT3D, RIP, SURF, and GAS into one environment with modules that share data. Sharing data between modules eliminates the drudgery of transferring data between programs. All the modules in the FAST environment have a consistent, highly interactive graphical user interface. Most commands are entered by pointing and clicking. The modular construction of FAST makes it flexible and extensible. The environment can be custom configured and new modules can be developed and added as needed.

FAST is written in ANSI compliant FORTRAN 77 and C-language for use on SGI IRIS series workstations running IRIX 5.3 or later. It requires a minimum of 16Mb of RAM for execution, although 32Mb is preferred. A minimum of 75Mb of hard disk space is required. This program was developed in 1992 and version 1.2 was released in 1996.
FAST carries the NASA case number ARC-13316. It was originally released as part of the NASA COSMIC collection.
