This Week in CFD

This week’s hoard of CFD miscellany includes several items that will require a deep breath and some time to digest. There’s an online interactive text on linear algebra, the International Simulation Olympiad for academia, a very cool video visualization of internal combustion, a survey about PLM status, a video about writing effective [Physician, heal thyself.], a podcast with me and Kenneth Wong, and all the software, application and event news that could be made to fit this format and the time allotted to writing. I just liked this pretty little picture of a mesh and a boundary layer velocity profile from our friends at GridPro.

This Week in CFD

So many in-person CFD events are coming up in the first half of the year that’s what this edition of This Week in CFD leads with [count the grammar errors in that sentence]. Not to be outdone, the Image of the Week by an industry veteran is both easy on the eyes and informational. If video is more your thing, we have a nice reader-contributed, self-destructing mesh. And if words are your jam, two long reads involving CFD course notes and deep learning. For the rest us there are product launches, CFD applications, and a couple history lessons. Shown here in a simulation demonstrating something new for reducing propeller noise.

This Week in CFD

Welcome to the first, almost not published, edition of This Week in CFD for 2023. I write “almost not published” because WordPress is having some serious problems today so I’m just publishing what I’ve got before I lose any more work. So while this publishing effort is less than a stellar start to the new year, there’s the usual smattering of event news, applications, software updates, and open positions. Shown here is “the hot chocolate” effect from FYFD’s best of 2022.

This Week in CFD

Ever wish you could slow down or stop time so you could really enjoy something? This week’s article includes several items that can serve as a time sink. The “image of the week” deserves detailed inspection. Soccer fans (aka futbol fans) will want to spend time with an article about the aerodynamic properties of this year’s World Cup ball. Several videos worth watching over and over again. And there’s an online, interactive, 2D fluids simulator that is certain to keep you engaged for hours. Shown here is something my electronics friends can appreciate: air velocity vectors colored by temperature from a simulation of cooling an electronic gizmo (details inside).
