For reasons I can’t explain, I’m really excited and energetic today about CFD and work in general. Is it because of summer? Start of the Olympics? Being three months in to our new relationship with Cadence and Numeca and really starting to gain traction on cool new CFD stuff? Compiling this week’s CFD news didn’t harsh my buzz either. There are a lot of good CFD jobs open for those of you looking for something new. A couple of big events with lots of CFD and meshing are happening in the next few weeks. Plus all the other news and some fun(ny) stuff too. Shown here is a cool oil flow visualization of a wing from FYFD. If you aren’t reading FYFD, you should be.
Welcome to this week’s roundup and recap of all the CFD news that’s fit to print that could be documented in the time available. Of particular note is a Digital Engineering article on V&V that’s worth your time to read. Also included here is a summary of CFD 2030 activities at next month’s AIAA Aviation that we hope you can attend. And we (and others) are hiring. Check out the postings and apply. Shown here is just a nice image of simulation results for the Aachen turbine from FINE/Turbo.
Since Cadence acquired Pointwise back in mid-April, many of you, our customers and partners, have been curious about what the future holds for our eponymous meshing software. This natural curiosity is amplified because of Cadence’s acquisition of Numeca earlier in the year. Who’s Cadence? Why are they getting into CFD? Numeca already has a mesher so why acquire Pointwise? And then the dystopian fear that Big Corp is going to do to CFD what happened to the Ark of the Covenant at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Let’s try to answer these questions but not from a biased person like me. Let’s hear from Monica Schnitger.
So much CFD news, so little time. Lots of conference news which is great, especially as we move toward live events. At several of these events you’ll have the chance to hear from the Cadence CFD team. Speaking of Cadence CFD, we are hiring for several positions, both in Fort Worth and Brussels. As always, you’ll find all the applications, software releases, and other CFD news that time permitted me to include. Shown here is a screen capture from a video of a FieldView visualization of a Mach 1.5 jet impingement. Click through for the link and details.
I wish I could say there was something specific that stands out in this week’s compilation of CFD news. But it’s a fairly uniform compendium of CFD applications, software releases, company and tech introductions, computing insights, business and event updates, and just some all around good articles for the CFD maven. Today begins the Independence Day 3-day (or 4-day if you’re lucky) celebration in the U.S. with fireworks, cookouts, red, white, and blue regalia, and good times with family and friends.
