This Week in CFD

This week’s CFD news includes all the software, applications, jobs, financials, and other good reading that we’re used to. And then there are times when the CFD application of the week is cool. There are times when the CFD image of the week is pretty. Then there are times when we have a combo application and image of the week that’s just wow. Shown here is an example of the FINE/Marine software’s capabilities for marine propulsion systems. (See the animated version here.)

This Week in CFD

Let’s begin this week’s CFD news dump (a less artful term than curation) with jobs and it seems there are a lot of them. We also have a couple articles of the type that make you go “Hmm” – one on open research, the other of passion being detrimental. And among all the other software and application news there’s one bit of software noted that’s not directly CFD but I bet all of us could’ve used at one time or another. I’ll leave it to you to figure out which one I’m referring to. The image shown here recalls the time our friends at CRAFT Tech and NAVAIR meshed an aircraft carrier to do a wind over deck simulation. We used to have coffee mugs with this image on them it’s so cool.

This Week in CFD

This week’s CFD news begins with events and I’d be remiss if I didn’t open with a reminder of next week’s CadenceLIVE at which you can learn about CFD and Intelligent System Design. There’s a very cool application of crosswind takeoff on an aircraft’s engines and plenty of positive news from the business side of CAE. Plus all the other news about democratization, geometry model prep for CFD, and survey results on HPC usage for simulation. Shown here is a Numeca simulation of NASA’s X-59 Quiet Supersonic Technology aircraft. Everyone wants to go faster than the speed of sound these days but you’ll need CFD to help you get there.

Webinar: Marine Propeller with Cadence and CFD Support

Join us for a webinar on 15 Jun 2021 during which you’ll learn about validation of CFD results from the TCFD flow solver on a Pointwise mesh for the Potsdam Propeller Test Case (PPTC), a marine propulsor that was extensively measure by SVA Potsdam. The aim of this benchmark was to evaluate the combination of TCFD and Pointwise and to compare the results with experimental data.

Pointwise V18.4 R4 Ready for Download and Production Use

Pointwise Version 18.4 R4 is now available for download and production use. Pointwise V18.4 R4 is primarily a bug-fix release. The one new feature is extension of the Glyph scripting command getCellsUsingIndex to surface meshes. (It previously worked only for volume meshes.)

Download V18.4 R4 today from pointwise.com/downloads.
