Could you please suggest the software, where I can load my 3D model and see how it behave on various conditions (speed - preferably including supersonic, temperature, pressure)?

Both free & commercial variants are interesting.

Questions on Physics Stack Exchange are expected to relate to physics within the scope defined by the community. Consider editing the question or leaving comments for improvement if you believe the question can be reworded to fit within the scope. Read more about reopening questions here.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I think this is too far off topic from physics; it really falls under the realm of aerospace engineering. But since it concerns software, you could perhaps try asking on Super User (since I don't think there is another SE site that focuses on engineering). – David Z Feb 13 '11 at 4:16
Well, it would not be answered on SU, and as long as Computational Science is stuck on Area, I think we should give it a chance. – mbq Feb 13 '11 at 8:43
@David: While I agree that this sounds like an engineers tool, I'll offer a possible use case for physics. I don't know if the CFD people use Monte Carlo the way nuclear and particle physicists do, but if they did one of the tools they'd want is a whole experiment simulator for judging feasibility, and this is roughly what it would look like. – dmckee Feb 13 '11 at 15:45

If you want something that looks working and don't care much about the details, the standard solution is Fluent.
The nearest Open Source option is OpenFoam.
