This Week in CFD

Software

  • STAR-CCM+ v9.02 is due to be released at the end of February and CD-adapco has been offering previews of new features including volume rendering.
  • GPU acceleration of OpenFOAM can be had using Culises 1.1 from FluiDyna.
  • AcuNexus is now available through the Altair Partner Alliance. The software, a preprocessor for CFD, uses a technology called abstract modeling to allow for rapid geometry prep, meshing, and run-setup during simulation based design.
  • SU2 Educational v1.1 is now available from Stanford Univ.
  • The OpenFOAM Foundation released OpenFOAM 2.3.0 with improvements to multiphase modeling, discrete element modeling, thermal modeling and more.
  • Autodesk MeshMixer 2.1 is now available.

Just a Cool Photo of Sea Foam

Photographer Ger Kelliher snapped this rather cool photograph of sea foam. That’s all. I just thought it looked nice. I’m certain FYFD can explain what sea foam is and how it is formed. During my rather limited beach excursions I’m mostly looking for sea glass. [Too nerdly?]
