TURF development has been ongoing at AFRLRQRS for over two years and has reached a stage where most of the underlying code data-structures and interfaces are at a level of maturity at which it is possible for collaborators to begin writing external modules for the framework. To facilitate bringing these collaborators up to speed in writing modules for TURF, the TURF-IR has the capabilities in place to demonstrate bare-bones kinetic and fluid simulations, including a few example input files to provide convenient starting points for the development of additional physics capabilities. Though the framework has been designed in part to facilitate the creation of modules that replicate the functionality of ColiseumHPHall, it must be emphasized that the TURF-IR is intended to stimulate academic collaboration and does not provide equivalent real-world capabilities to the ColiseumHPHall suite. As such, this software by itself cannot be used to design or analyze real systems.
