We begin this week’s roundup of CFD news with a lot of software release announcements as though everyone was holding back until the holidays were over. And several good, long reads are included this week including one on our old friend, democratization, and another on what the next generation of engineers need to be learning in school (and it’s not which buttons to push to make Software X run). And there’s programming news from the old (Fortran) to the new (Rust). Oh, and the image of the week is quite awesome. Shown here is CFD simulation by SimScale of heat loss in a building. Isn’t it quite a pretty image? Like a watercolor.

AIAA SciTech 2021, an online event, opened yesterday. Over the next two weeks there are seven technical sessions hosted by the Meshing, Visualization, and Computational Environments technical committee that you’ll probably want to attend. Here’s a brief list of the wheres and whens.
Yes, I know that sounds too good to be true. We have three open positions and are seeking folks who are excited about mesh generation and CFD and thrive in the everyday application of those technologies to innovative products. One of the three positions is full-time requiring someone who has completed their degree while the other two are summer 2021 internships.
And here is the first issue of This Week in CFD for the new year. Some applications of CFD (including the Image of the Week for an overset simulation), event updates, and some interesting software work at Los Alamos to enable exascale computing. The application of the week (shown here) is a injection of sauce into gelato computed using STAR-CCM+. (I mean, c’mon – it’s sweet, wonderful gelato.)

The 2021 AIAA SciTech Forum, and expanded virtual event, begins next week and runs 11-15 January and 19-21 January. Pointwise will be well represented at the workshops and technical sessions and we invite you to join us for some mesh generation and CFD.
