This Week in CFD

Events

  • Good blogging from Symscape about the APS Fluid Dynamics Meeting recent conferences [inserted].
  • Even though it’s still a year away, the 25th anniversary of the supercomputing conference. SC13, is already eagerly anticipated with this video history of supercomputing.
  • Presentations from the Open Source CFD International Conference 2012 are now available online. (Registration required.) Of particular interest are:
    • GPL, the Law, and the Community which begins with the statement “The Open Source CFD Community is confused about the GPL and legal issues in general.”
    • Automated Generation of Structured Meshes for Wind Energy Applications

Mesh Portraiture

Mesh portrait by Seung Mo Park

Proving yet again that meshing turns up in more places than you’d first believe, consider the work of artist Seung Mo Park who sculpts portraits out of layers of wire mesh. This is a perfect example of top-down meshing – start with a Cartesian grid on a square and cut away the parts that don’t match the object being meshed. [To continue to flog this weak analogy, bottom-up meshing would be like painting a portrait and automated meshing would be snapping someone’s photograph.]

    Please accept my apologies for confusion which of Symscape’s blog posts went with which conference. The post has been corrected.
