You must have an appointment at the University of Washington or be enrolled in a UW course to use the software. The software may be run on UW owned, or personally owned equipment.
The software is licensed on an annual basis and expires on August 31 each year. Users must re-visit this site to download new license files when the software expires.
Rights to use the software end when your affiliation with the UW ends.
Tecplot may be requested from the College of Engineering Software ordering site. You must have your name and email address listed (and public) in the UW faculty, staff, or student online directory to order Tecplot.
Tecplot is used by engineers and scientists who need to create a wide range of high-quality plots from simple XY plots to sophisticated 3-D plots from data sets of up to millions of data points. Many Tecplot users are post-processing data created by finite-difference and finite-element numerical simulations of physical processes like fluid dynamics, geophysics, structural dynamics, and electromagnetics.
Tecplot aids engineers and scientists in doing analyses, simulations, or experiments, and helps them explore their data and produce informative 2- and 3-D graphical representations of their data. Tecplot can also create presentation-quality plots and animations and prepare plots for the Web.
The UW site license is provided by the College of Engineering.
Tecplot is available at this site for many operating systems including Windows, Mac, HP, Sun, IBM and Linux.
After you "purchase" tecplot here, you will be sent a confirmation email with links to download the license file "tecplotlm.lic".
During installation you will be asked for a license type, select "Purchased".
When asked for a license number, enter the UW license number given to you when you "purchased" tecplot. You will be asked again for license type. This time the options are "Network or Site" or "Single-User". For a network install, you simply point your tecplot application at the College of Engineering tecplot license server. Use the tecplotlm.lic file you downloaded for single user installs.
At the end of the installation you may be prompted to activate tecplot or send the contents of file "myhostids.txt" to tecplot tech support. This is not needed. Simply replace the contents of the tecplotlm.lic file automatically installed on your computer with the file you downloaded.
This software is provided "as is" with no support from College of Engineering staff.
