This Week in CFD

This week’s collection of CFD ethereal flotsam and jetsam comes from my Covid-soaked mind. But don’t worry, there’s some lucidity herein. There are several items to draw you in such as a beginner’s guide to CAD data, a longish list of fun CFD stuff at AIAA Aviation next week (including free food and conviviality courtesy of Cadence), a survey on the state of cloud PLM, and all the other software releases and event news. Shown here is a cropped teaser from a video about what appears to be goopy fluid dynamics.

CFD News from CadenceLIVE

We’re at the midway point of CadenceLIVE Silicon Valley 2022, the first return to an in-person format in a couple of years and the first time ever for in-person CFD involvement. The CFD presentations were all held on day 1 but you can still see CFD in action and meet members of the Cadence CFD team in the exhibit hall today.

This Week in CFD

June will be a busy month for Cadence CFD and I’ve included a lot of what we have going on in this month’s first edition of This Week in CFD. I’d like your feedback on the article about the performance of the latest Macs for CFD codes and opinions on why they aren’t more widely used. In addition there are a couple of job openings, plenty of CFD applications including, and events at which we might possibly meet. Shown here is a sculpted impeller designed at Cameron Compression using a Pointwise-based meshing tool.

This Week in CFD

The weekend is nigh and if you’re in the U.S. the long Memorial Day weekend beckons and if you work for a top 100 best place to work company the extra long weekend has already started. What better way to segue into R&R than with CFD. Two important reminders from us: CadenceLIVE in early June and a Fidelity CFD webinar toward the end of the month. There’s a compelling article on using the latest Mac for CFD. And all the usual suspects: software releases, applications, and more. The image shown here is a Fidelity CFD teaser for our live webinar coming up on 22 June.

This Week in CFD

These past three weeks of CFD news threaten to turn this regular post into This Month in CFD if the burst of business travel doesn’t abate. But the more content the merrier. For those of you up for some fluids video-learning, there’s a 25-part series from the 60s that should keep you entertained for a while. I look forward to your feedback on the paper comparing tet and hex meshes, “hero” calculations pros/cons, and a wonderful (to me) article about prism layer meshing. Of course, there’s a lot more to comment on and share too. Oh, and please weigh in on the “top” and “best” CFD software lists. FieldView can always be counted on for some interesting CFD graphics such as this side-by-side rotor configuration for a UAM vehicle showing isosurfaces of Q-criterion colored by vorticity magnitude.
