2DFlow is a Microsoft Windows based program for visualizing incompressible fluid flows induced by distributions of vortices, dipoles, and sources. 2DFlow graphically illustrates the use of potential flow theory and has the capability to simulate a wide range of flow problems. Designed for the educational market, 2DFlow quickly produces graphic representations of many classic fluid dynamics problems which makes it very useful for student comprehension.

Used in conjunction with a fluid dynamics class, 2DFlow can make visualization of flows in textbook theory as easy as a click of the mouse. 2DFlow is also valuable to the fluids professional, as it allows the user to visualize and gain intuitive knowledge of complex flows.

2DFlow allows the user to choose the locations of boundaries and singularities by using the mouse or by inputting specific coordinates.

2DFlow features point and click singularity insertion and can plot velocity vectors, trajectories, and flow contours (equipotential lines, stream-lines, streaklines, and isobars). Any quantity that is contoured can also be graphed along a defined by the user using the mouse. The flow circulation around a specified point in the flow can also be computed. Additionally, 2DFLOW+ allows particle emission and strain-square emission. These features allow analysis of flow fields and enable firm understanding of fundamental fluid mechanics concepts.
 
The program also includes a speed bar for fast access to commonly used functions. Support color graphical output is includes several provided color-palettes. A number of color-palettes are supplied. In addition the program allows users to define their own palettes. Results can be exported to other MS Windows applications such as Excel.
