While it’s not for me to tell you what to watch or read, there are two must watch videos this week. The first – screenshot shown here – is a beautiful simulation of Rayleigh-Benard convection. The second is an article with embedded video interviews about our friend democratization and what it really means. Continue reading

The Pointwise Plugin SDK was updated with the release of V18.1 to include grid import capability. This third post in a 4-part series provides details about how to write a structured grid importer. Previous posts have detailed unstructured grid import and provided an overview of the API. Continue reading
This week’s CFD news is less inscrutable than the Great Sphinx of Giza (shown here courtesy of the must-try new tool for mesh viz in your browser, HexLab) and includes several recently announced events, a new CFD startup (AirShaper), and our old friend democratization is back. Read all the way to the end for a brain teaser on cutting a tetrahedron. Continue reading
