This Week in CFD

This week’s agglomeration of CFD news and notes includes a fantastic image of the week which follows a very cool image of the week in the last edition. The fact that Pointwise was used for the meshing in both is a point of pride. Plenty of events and software releases round-out the news. And just a reminder that you should also be following the Cadence CFD blog for even more goodness. Shown here is a simulation of wind over terrain from WindStation CFD (link included below).

This Week in CFD

Due to the beneficence of my employer, today is a day off, a “global recharge day.” Which means that this week’s compendium of CFD news is more relaxed and less snarky than usual. (Sorry, Jeff). The image of the week is a modern take on a classic aircraft. And don’t forget: This Week in CFD brackets the weekend with Monday’s This Week at Fidelity CFD which is a deeper dive into what’s going on here at Cadence. So you’ll probably want to subscribe to the Cadence CFD blog to not miss an issue. Shown here is an Azore CFD simulation of tracking exhaust flows around buildings. Having recently driven by a Tyson’s chicken processing plant, this is a problem that needs solving.

This Week in CFD

Thirty-four days until Thanksgiving. Sixty-five until Xmas. Seventy-one until 2022 is over. But only one day until the weekend. Let’s celebrate small victories with big news from the wonderful world of CFD. We have some tips on writing technical papers and a 2,000+ page paper on math for machine learning. Lots of event news including next year’s CadenceLIVE and this December’s HiFiLeD. Plus quantum computing, CFD applications, and more. Shown here is an image from work by Laizet et al on simulations of turbulent flow with moving objects on a moving mesh. (Coincidentally, Dr. Laizet is one of the keynote speakers at December’s HiFiLeD.)

This Week in CFD

There’s something for everyone in today’s muster of CFD news. There’s a CFD contest for grad students, vibrating cars, updates from the SIAM International Meshing Roundtable, a report on progress toward the CFD Vision 2030 during 2021, and plenty of events including two turbomachinery webinars from us at Cadence. Pop quiz: What is the CFD simulation shown here? a) grilling a hamburger, 2) a dangerous chemistry experiment, III) me opening the door to the weekend, or D) other? Read on for the answer.

This Week in CFD

Something weekend this way comes (credit @etherbrian). And with the weekend you get a side order of CFD notions. After a long wait, the AIAA’s CFD Vision 2030 integration committee published their report describing progress toward the vision during 2021. There’s a fascinating video of an LES simulation of a complete turbofan engine along with the accompanying technical paper (from 2020). And you’ll have to read to the bottom of this week’s post to figure out what this image is showing.
