Mesh Generation Deja Wha?

We learn many things from this overview of mesh generation in CFD. Much of what we learn is unusual. And much more sounds eerily familiar. Here’s some of the unusual stuff:

  • “three-dimensional CFD renderings” are the most preferable form of mesh.
  • CFD comes in 2D, 3D, 4D, and 5D forms. [Why stop at 5?]
  • To achieve the best CFD results “it is recommended to outsource professional services for mesh or grid generation.”

And that image of a structured, multi-block grid for the Aachen turbine, I swear I’ve seen that somewhere before.

Git Yer Meshing Kicks

Do you think you’d generate better meshes while wearing a pair of New Balance 890v4? Honestly, it probably wouldn’t hurt.
