This Week in CFD

cyclist-meshIf you’re a fan of head-to-head comparisons of CFD codes, this week’s CFD news includes Resolved Analytics’ look at Fluent vs. STAR-CCM+. And if you’re a fan of hard-hitting comparisons of CAD software, you’ll find a look at SolidWorks vs. Onshape. And if you prefer reading about CFD results, there are plenty of applications this week including the aerodynamics of a cyclists shown here from the paper by Blocken et al. Continue reading

This Week in CFD

190715_vincent_peter_009--tojpeg_1563878427049_x2 (1)Lots of good and longish reads are included in this week’s rundown of CFD news. One of these longish articles shares the results of Engineering.com’s Test and Simulation Survey. For you programmers is an article about whether object-oriented programming is just a horrible mistake. Shown here is an image of a video wall of a simulation of fundamental turbulent flow behavior done at Imperial College. Continue reading

This Week in CFD

pedestrian-windAs is predictable after skipping a week, this week’s CFD news is bursting at the seams with a two-week backlog of applied CFD, software releases. job postings, event news and more. Notable are a video teaser of Simcenter’s Screenplay, bio-mimicry in the use of tubercles on wing leading edges, and a survey on CAD usage that’s worth your time to take. Shown here is a SimScale simulation of wind modelling in an urban environment.

I’m Cade Kingston and This Is How I Mesh

I have lived in Frisco, Texas all of my life with my mom, dad, and two younger brothers. With so many boys in the house, sports was an integral part of my family. I spent the majority of my life playing football and baseball, and I still love watching both as often as I can. Ever since I was a kid, I was completely entranced by aircraft. I’ve always known that Aerospace Engineering was the career path for me. After graduating high school, I began attending Texas A&M University where I am about to enter my junior year in pursuit of a Bachelor of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering. My younger brothers have both followed in my footsteps and will attend Texas A&M next year, so I really look forward to taking them to some Fightin’ Texas Aggie football games.
