5.   Conclusion.

    The Star-CD code represents 24% of the market of the hydraulics calculation codes (33% for Fluent). This pourcentage shows how important this code is in the industry. The mesh maker seems to be more practical than the Fluent's one.
    The idea of the tutorial is quite good, it helps to learn quickly the main commands of Star-CD and gives the tools to take initiatives. With what we have learned, we could modify the boundary conditions of temperature very easily even if it was not initially forecasted in the tutorial.
     The GUI interface is well made and the interaction with the code is quite good. To know if this code is really efficient, multiphases tests would be necessary. Such tests could show the limits of Star-CD.
