- 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.
- The 2014 Code_Saturne User Meeting will be held on 02 April in Chatou, France. Registration is here.
- SC14, the supercomputing conference, is now accepting technical program submissions. Abstracts are due 04 April. The conference is 16-21 November in New Orleans.
- Pointwise has openings for summer interns in both product development and technical support in Fort Worth, Texas.
- Exa has multiple internships for application engineers available in both the Detroit and Boston areas.
- CD-adapco seeks a senior software developer in electromagnetism in the Austin, Texas area.
- A company presumed to be CD-adapco has multiple openings for mesh generation software engineers at multiple locations.
- STAR-CCM+ is used to simulate the production of pharmaceuticals using DEM.
- Reverse engineering and meshing of ant anatomy using Simpleware.
- Symscape writes about solid modeling in CFD.
- I would like to hear from the “experts in fluid mechanics” who contributed to the research on the perfect way to hold a cheeseburger to keep it from dripping and falling apart.
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?]
