This Week in CFD

mesh-adaptation-that-works-small-cropThis week’s CFD news begins with brief but valuable advice about writing abstracts for your tech papers. Then for reasons that remain unclear, there’s a lot of news about meshing – applied meshing, mesh file formats, types of meshes, new meshing software. But don’t worry, there’s also CFD flow solver news and applications and a totally awesome video of the week. The image shown here is a teaser from a mesh adaptation study we did with ISimQ using CFX as the flow solver. Continue reading
