What is the best open source CFD Software? SU2, OpenFOAM, ...

Good luck !

Also, if you are a student, you can get a ( free ) 3yr license to this one, in which the learning curve is about 1 - 1/1000th the other software mentioned

Unless you have massive computing power I would look here:

I ran across this link a few months ago. It might be helpful :

https://www.cloudcfd.co/pricing.html

BTW : It's jumped up in price five times over since then !

Some recent mechanical engineering graduate students who did CFD for their Masters Thesis have commented that only the Direct Numerical Simulation form of CFD can predict all the turbulence of a 3-D object.
Dr. Teddy Woll,of Daimler-Benz says that Mercedes-Benz is using it and it is within 1% accuracy of full-scale wind tunnel tests.
With a supercomputer,a digitized automobile requires about 48-hours run time due to the mesh size,and time steps required for this full Navier-Stokes solver.
Desktop CFD has shown errors of 13%.They DO however show definite 'trends' in performance.
